Publisher's Summary

Rowan Atkinson stars as many different characters in four episodes from the classic comedy series, written by Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill), which investigates the lives of four great - but imaginary - men. We hear about the life and times of master orator Sir Benjamin Fletcher: writer, statesman, Nobel Prize winner, painter, farmer, diplomat, wit, etc, etc.... There’s France’s greatest thinker and philosopher, George Dupont; and actor, raconteur, and general bore Sir Corin Basin. Barry Good - the ‘Pope of pop’ - also looks back at his life (before he became a rich tax exile).
Produced by Griff Rhys Jones, Atkinson’s People was one of the first radio series ever to star Rowan Atkinson and was a forerunner to the massively successful Blackadder TV series. Rowan Atkinson stars in the spoof radio series, which examined the personalities behind the headlines - co-written by Richard Curtis.

i want what i baught not something else

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the download would come with the two hours I paid for not 0.0 minutes when download completes

Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson again?

Always

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rowan Atkinson?

No

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Classic BBC Radio Comedy: Rowan Atkinson's The Atkinson People?

If I could get a chance to listen to it I'm sure I would have a comment

Any additional comments?

Why when I buy directly from amazon ive had no problem. The first time I try to buy elsewhere I get screwed
