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 came 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.
