Father Ted - On audio for the very first time


This brand new CD from BBC Audio features four hilarious episodes from the first and second series of Father Ted, Channel 4's brilliant and surreal television comedy show.


Starring the late Dermot Morgan as Father Ted Crilly, Ardal O'Hanlon as Father Dougal McGuire, Frank Kelly as Father Jack Hackett and Pauline McLynn as housekeeper, Mrs Doyle, and set on the rather bleak Craggy Island, Father Ted really is situation comedy at its very best.


The episodes included on this CD are:


A Song For Europe

Inspired by Dougal's enthusiasm and driven on by his rivalry with Father Dick Byrne, Ted enters the Eurosong Contest with a 'borrowed' tune.


The Plague

When Bishop Brennan, who has an intense rabbit phobia, visits Craggy Island, Dougal's new pet rabbit Sampras must be kept well hidden. But a sudden proliferation of rabbits leads to a crisis situation .


The Passion of St. Tibulus

When a highly controversial movie, which has been banned by the Pope, is shown on Craggy Island, Bishop Brennan calls on Ted and Dougal's support to get the film withdrawn.


Cigarettes and Alcohol and Rollerblading

As Lent arrives, Ted gives up cigarettes, Jack gives up drink and Dougal gives up rollerblading. But when they fall at the first hurdle, they ask for help from a strict order of militant nuns.


Father Ted will be published on CD (RRP: £12.99) by BBC Audio on 04.04.05 .
