The Complete Yes Minister - Collector's Boxset

The Complete Yes Minister - Collector's Boxset

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. This great value boxed set contains the complete series one, two and three - every single episode until Jim Hacker rises to become prime minister. Easily the sharpest political comedy every written, with clandestine help from real civil servants, this is satire that bites so close to home it sometimes seems more like a documentary. Don't let the fact that it was loved by real politicians put you off, this does the impossible: it makes politics not just fun but hilariously funny.
