Following the release of Fawlty Towers, BBC Worldwide has seen fit to launch another British classic on iTunes.

To mark 20 years since the series last appeared on our screens, the entire series of Blackadder is available to download from the iTunes Store for the first time ever.

Fans can now download series 1 to 4 or a single episode from iTunes, while in December, the Christmas special "A Christmas Carol" will also be made available in time for the festive season. 

Of the release, Tony Robinson said: "The words 'I have a cunning plan' have forever haunted me since the making of Blackadder, but I'm glad that lines like that amongst others, continue to be remembered with such fondness by fans of the show years after it was made. The fact that Blackadder is now in these fantastic new formats is a real tribute to the longevity of this classic British comedy and its ongoing appeal to audiences both old and new".

In addition, the Complete Collected CD series will be available from BBC Audiobooks with 3 hours of specials and extras including previously unreleased material and CD narration by different cast members of the show.
