|In politics, you have to really get behind somebody before you can stab them in the back! Named one of the Top Ten TV programs of all time by the British Film Institute, this brilliantly observed comedy of manners pits the well-meaning Jim Hacker, a newly appointed Cabinet Minister, against the machinations of a career civil servant, Sir Humphrey Appleby, in the ultimate political marriage of inconvenience. Paul Eddington (Good Neighbors) stars as the The Right Honorable Jim Hacker, a role that was written especially for him, and Academy Award nominee Nigel Hawthorne (The Madness of King George) first drew wide notice in the role of Sir Humphrey Appleby. Yes Minister is the first--and only--series to win the British Academy Award for Best Comedy three years running.|
Editor's NoteOne of the most respected satires in the history of television, this BBC series follows the good intentions of one upstart politician as he meets opposition in the form of another senior cabinet member. With inspired character work by Nigel Hawthorne, Paul Eddington, and Derek Fowlds, the comedy series is unforgettable. This collection contains the entire series, including episodes never previously available on home video.
