Looking at my compulsion to collect DVDs... and find extras.

There are a bunch of extra bits (mostly live and/or charity pieces) for the series Blackadder.

OK, everyone knows about the three series:

  • The Black Adder.
  • Blackadder II.
  • Blackadder the Third.
  • Blackadder Goes Forth.

Then there are the specials which are pretty common:

  • Blackadder's Christmas Special.
  • Blackadder: Back & Forth.

Then there are the following:
