Lenin of the Rovers
Comedy with Alexei Sayle as footballer Ricky Lenin

The gripping story of one man's fight to establish Britain's first communist football club, starring Alexei Sayle as Ricky Lenin. Also starring Ballard Berkeley, Kenneth Wolstenholme, Keith Allen and Phil Cornwell.

Episode 1, Up for the Coup: 'The art of leadership consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention.'

Episode 2, Felcherama: 'Frankly admitting a mistake, ascertaining the reasons for it, analysing the conditions which led to it, and thoroughly discussing the means of correcting it - that is the earmark of a serious party, that is the way it should perform its duties.'

Episode 3, The Fifth Man: 'If we succeed, then the revolutionary conflagration will spread. The revolutionary wave will convert an epoch of a few revolutionary years into an epoch of several revolutionary decades.'

Episode 4, Max Gut: 'Before everything else, we must save the revolution, and we can save it only by signing peace terms with the Germans. Better a split than the danger of an overthrow of the revolution.'

Episode 5, Ghosts and Goolies: Ricky decides to write a column in a tabloid newspaper and ends up learning a few lessons about life, love, truth and Gloria Hunniford.

Episode 6, The Felchester Firm: Can the so-called 'Felchester Firm' protect Ricky and the team?

Episode 7, Apocalypse Des: Where better to go for a sunny pre-cup-final break than newly-communist El Telvador? Anywhere, if Des Frankly is interpreter. So begins a terrifying journey into the very heart of darkness itself.

Episode 8, The Final Solution: Felchester have reached the cup final; but Ricky's million-pound sponsorship deal could jeopardise everything, involving as it does a pig, a nuclear power station and the Florida state electric chair.
