Description

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.

Does this work as an audiobook? Yes, Minister ...

This wonderfully witty, clever and beguilingly cynical look at British politics made perfect television when originally made, and it works just as well as an audiobook. Those familiar with the series will be very pleased by the chance to re-encounter Jim Hacker, Sir Humphrey Appleby and Bernard Woolley, and those unfamiliar are in store for a real treat.

Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister will reward multiple listenings, and there are two bonuses among the episodes: The Yes Minister sketch involving Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and a Christmas Greeting from Sir Humphrey Appleby to Jim.

Download it as soon as you can - you certainly won't regret it!

Laughted our loud!

This is a great series and one I will listen to again and again. It's farcical banter and beaurocratic nonsense has made me laugh out loud on my commute many any times. Such good fun!

It's funny because it's true.

Regardless of the original production date, this series remains funny because it is still relevant. This is one that I can listen to repeatedly. The characters are interesting, funny, and knowable. The topics are real, the situations all too familiar, and you just know this is what really goes on in government, doubtless no matter the country. Yes Minister and the follow-up Yes Prime Minister are just funny- plain and simple.

Memorable

Such great satire, it'll change the way you think about politics. I didn't realise it wasn't current, all the issues are so familiar.

Entertaining in a droll and eye-opening way

This wasn't a laugh-out-loud experience for me, but I enjoyed the way I was taught the machinations of politics in a humorous way. It is a good thing I am not a school teacher because I would try to get kids to learn more "how the world really works" beyond the accepted school curriculum - and this comedic audio has many good examples of how human ideals, egos, hunger for power, and sneaky machinations collide.

Listening to this audio book at the same time as watching a series called "Borgen" gives an immersive experience of humans and politics - at least as portrayed by the entertainment industry. And amazement as to why anyone would want to be in politics.

The audio issue here needs to be discussed. The voices are sometimes a bit hollow and distant, requiring the volume be turned up. However, the audience laughter (a laugh track?) is a solid sound, sometimes requiring the ear buds to be quickly pulled out of the ear if the iPod is in a pocket and too hard to reach fast. This uneven sound quality is not great for someone who uses earbuds, but if you listen to audio books on a speaker may not be an issue.

I think I laughed out loud only a few times, but the audio version was still an enjoyable experience - and I learned something about how our world works and people behave too.

Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister

I was an enthusiast of both TV shows and still think they were wonderful. However, I'm disappointed with the audiobooks because they don't lend themselves to the (poor quality) live, on stage, audio format, with (canned?) laughter and other distracting sounds the mikes pick-up that lend one to consider the whole presentation amateurish. It's doubly disappointing, as the original shows are recalled as cutting edge comedy, at the time. The years have not been kind to the performances. I'm afraid this audiobook is not up to Audible's standard of excellence.

The farcical nature of government has never been better satire it is still relevant today.
