QI - The Complete First Series

QI - The Complete First Series

The comedy quiz that refreshes the parts other shows don't even have names for.

Here is the first, ground-breaking series of the programme that won Stephen Fry the Golden Rose of Montreux for the world's best game-show host. BBC2's smash-hit comedy is also the most popular programme on BBC4. It's a 26-year project, each series dealing with a different letter of the alphabet, and this is the one that started it all off. Here is an avalanche of askings on astronomy, anteaters, apples, Africa, aeroplanes, atoms, antelopes, anchovies, Antarctica and Azerbaijan all of it absolutely astonishing to Alan Davies (QI's resident loser and Stephen Fry's favourite stud-muffin).

The friendliest show on British TV is graced by the cream of world-class comedy talent including Bill Bailey, Hugh Laurie, Rich Hall, Jo Brand, Meera Syall, Rob Brydon, Jeremy Clarkson, Jimmy Carr, Phill Jupitus, Sean Lock, Clive Anderson, Danny Baker, John Sessions, Jeremy Hardy, Linda Smith and Dave Gorman.

Discover the definitive answers to the questions you didn't even know existed. Why don't pigeons go to the movies? Why are there no Alsatians in the Spanish army? What flavour is the oldest known soup? How do otters kill crocodiles? And what is the name of the 23rd tallest tree in the world?

Special features include:
Pilot episode not broadcast on TV
Out-takes and extra bits
Dozens of extra factoids
Production team's audio commentary
Concealed elf-banter
Hidden Easter Eggs
