Three episodes from the popular TV comedy: Corporal Punishment - Following communication problems in the trenches, Captain Blackadder finds himself at the mercy of General Melchett after eating the messenger carrier pigeon, the General's childhood friend, ?Speckled Jim'. Blackadder needs to avoid death by firing squad with the help of George as his lawyer. Private Plane - This episode sees the introduction of Lord Flashheart, the arrogant flying ace. Despite Blackadder's loathing of Flashheart, he finds himself signing up to the Royal Flying Corps with Baldrick and George, unaware that the nickname the ?Twenty Minuters' is in relation to the pilots' average life expectancy. Following a crash behind enemy lines, they must prepare for their fate, unless they can escape from the Germans! General Hospital - After a bomb strike in the trench, George is left hospitalised and under the care of Nurse Mary. Melchett informs Blackadder that there is a spy in the hospital giving away all of their battle plans, so Blackadder and Darling are sent undercover to smoke them out.Producer Erith Playhouse.
