Yes Minister & Yes Prime Minister: The Complete Box Set (DVD)
Starring Paul Eddington and Nigel Hawthorne star in the classic political satire set in Westminster.
The Right Honourable James Hacker MP is the newly-appointed Minister of Administrative Affairs who soon finds many of his ideas for reform openly opposed by the civil servants whose job it is to implement them – in particular by his Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby. Their respective battle of wits to gain and maintain the levers of power form the basis of the series.
This complete collection includes every episode of the hugely popular political satire Yes Minister series 1 - 3 (which first aired in 1980 on BBC 2) along with each episode in the subsequent two series of Yes Prime Minister (which aired from 1986).
Meet the bewildered Rt Hon James Hacker, his scheming and equivocating Permanent Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby and of course, Bernard, the piggy-in-the middle, on their fraught journey through the corridors of power. Easily the sharpest political comedy every written, with clandestine help from real civil servants, and satire that bites so close to home it sometimes seems more like a documentary. This does the impossible: it makes politics not just fun but hilariously funny.
