The New Statesman - The Complete Series

Alan B'Stard (Rik Mayall) appears in his sleazy entirety in this four-disc box set. Immorality is permanent flavour of the month in B'Stard's office, as it seems that the cunning MP cannot sink low enough, nor come up with a plot nasty enough even for his deeply flawed sense of justice and fair play.

Extras include audio commentary from series creators Lawrence Marks and Maurice Gran on 'Three Line Whipping', 'The Haltemprice Bunker' and 'Labour of Love' plus the special 'Who Shot Alan B'Stard?' 70 minute episode.

First released: Sunday 1st October 2006
