|In an unlikely chain of events, Jim Hacker emerges as the most viable candidate for his party's next Prime Minister. Now that he gets his own car and driver, a nice house in London, a place in the country, endless publicity and a pension for life, what more does he want? Bernard: I think he wants to govern Britain. Sir Humphrey: Well, stop him, Bernard!|
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 Prime Minister Jim Hacker against the machinations of the Cabinet Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby, in the ultimate political marriage of inconvenience. Paul Eddington (Good Neighbors) stars as Jim Hacker and Academy Award nominee Nigel Hawthorne (The Madness of King George) first drew wide notice in the role of Sir Humphrey Appleby.
Editor's NoteThe classic BBC series about a clueless Prime Minister and his cunning staff is presented in its entirity. This biting satire stars Paul Eddington as Jim Hacker, who emerges his party's choice to run for Prime Minister. It's his advisors, however, who try to run the show. A true classic, the show has been hailed as one of the best in Britain's history. Featuring Nigel Hawthorne.
