Publisher's Summary

For the first time in one audio collection, all 16 Yes Minister radio episodes plus six further TV episodes, 14 Yes Prime Minister episodes and two bonus sketches.
Between 1980 and 1988 on BBC television and radio, the exploits of the Rt Hon Jim Hacker MP (Paul Eddington) - later Prime Minister - kept the British nation enthralled. Helped - and hampered - by his diligent Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and his Principle Private Secretary Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds), Hacker and his department became synonymous with government bureaucracy and administrative double dealing. Presented here, for the first time in one collection, are the complete radio series of Yes Minister and the complete BBC television soundtracks of Yes Prime Minister. Also included are six TV soundtracks of Yes Minister and two special bonus mini-episodes: "The PM’s Plan", recorded in 1984 with Margaret Thatcher as herself, and a special segment created for "The Funny Side of Christmas" in 1982.

Funny and relevant

This is my favourite audible book and I have listened to it more times than I know. It still makes me laugh out loud, even though I know what is coming. It amazes me how relevant all the topics and catastrophes that happen still are. I would def recomend it to people of all ages but particularly if you have an interest in politics.

Comedy Gods!

Any additional comments?

What can I say about this phenomenal series that hasn't already been said a thousand times before? If (like me) you loved the television series then there's no reason why you won't like these audio versions, since they use the same amazing scripts (adapted for radio) and star the same original cast (indeed even many of the minor characters are played by the same actors). Not only that but they also manage to convey all of the fun and spontaneity that was present in the TV series which lifted it from merely "good" to "truly great". Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
