The Gambler - Complete Series 1-2
The series follows Tim FitzHigham as he embarks on recreating bizarre and amusing bets from history.
The first episode opens with a bet wagered by the 4th Duke of Queensbury in 1753. The bet: that Tim can pass a missive over a distance of 50 miles in one hour, using only the means that would have been available to a gentleman in 1753.
Other episodes cover a wide range of bizarre bets including a 'gamble Anglaise' from 1811, attempting to get a cheeseboard to travel a distance of four-and-a-half miles in under 100 throws; an 18th-Century bet, attempting to outrun a racehorse over a hundred-yard dash; and trying to navigate central London blindfolded.
Listen in as the bets hot up and the antics get harder. Can Tim tackle the bets and complete them all?

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
