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.
