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 looked at the personalities behind the headlines - co-written by Richard Curtis.
