Blackadder Goes Forth, written by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis originally performed as a television series for the BBC.

Black Adder Goes Forth is the British comedy that takes satirical swipes at various epochs of history; in this case, World War I. The lead role, Edmund Blackadder, who is sharp of intellect, corrupt and conniving, accompanied by the dimwitted Baldrick and by his incompetent subordinates The eternal Baldrick and the good-natured and stupid, although surprisingly talented George, who Blackadder spends most of his time attempting to evade, are going out into the field against the Germans.

Thwarting Blackadder’s goal are the loud, dimwitted General Melchett and his “office boy”, the waffly Captain Darling, who is Blackadder’s enemy. The anti-war message in ‘Blackadder Goes Forth, is clear and poignant, exposing the futility and inefficiency of the first world war.
