The complete Yes, Minister & Yes, Prime Minister series is absolutely brilliant!! The inner workings of the Civil Service are brought to light in a form that is both humourous and witty

The complete Yes, Minister & Yes, Prime Minister series is absolutely brilliant!! The inner workings of the Civil Service are brought to light in a form that is both humourous and witty. This is genre-defining political satire, and reading the book and watching the shows have provided me with hours of immense pleasure, as well as insight into what really goes on in the corridors of power.

Anglophiles already know about Yes Minister, the BBC comedy series featuring a fictional bumbling cabinet minister and his department’s senior civil servant who is subordinate to him, but by no means subservient, or is it the other way around? By British standards, this has been a long-running series: twenty-one episodes were written and aired between 1980 and 1983 plus recently another eight episodes called Yes Prime Minister in which the main character has been promoted. The popularity of Yes Minister among British politicians and others in the know has been astounding. They have watched it avidly, quoted it over dinner, and made it into a national fad.

American viewers currently watching the shows on many PBS stations will probably agree that Yes Minister is. .Truth to tell, the misadventures of the Right Hon. James Hacker MP are too much of a one-note theatrical device

American viewers currently watching the shows on many PBS stations will probably agree that Yes Minister is diverting fare, even if the subtler implications of the satire on British political pieties are occasionally somewhat obscure. How readers (as opposed to viewers) on this side of' the Atlantic will respond to the material is another matter. James Hacker MP are too much of a one-note theatrical device. Hacker's idealism (naivetÉ?) comes into conflict with the entrenched bureaucracy as soon as he is named Minister of Administrative Affairs by a newly elected British Government.

Yes Minister is a political satire British sitcom written by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn. Split over three seven-episode series, it was first transmitted on BBC2 from 1980 to 1984. A sequel, Yes, Prime Minister, lasted 16 episodes and ran from 1986. A sequel, Yes, Prime Minister, lasted 16 episodes and ran from 1986 to 1988. All but one of the episodes lasted half an hour, and almost all ended with a variation of the title of the series spoken as the answer to a question posed by Minister (later, Prime Minister) Jim Hacker. James Hacker kept his diaries from the day on which he first entered the Cabinet. His original plan had been simply to make notes for his memory, but he soon realised that there would be intrinsic interest in a diary which gave a daily picture of the struggles of a Cabinet Minister.

This book is a companion to the highly successful BBC series, "Yes Minister."

This and the Complete Yes Prime Minister are awesome examples of how great writing transcends medium. You might think, "There's no way they can duplicate the wittiness, speed and thought process of the TV show in a book"--but they do! And at times it's even BETTER than the show in writing. The only very minor gripe I have is the constant intercession by the authors with "1 - in conversation with the editors" footnotes. Most of the footnotes are helpful; these are unnecessary.

I have finished reading this wonderful book for the umpteenth time.It never grows old.The stories,the characters,the language expressed are all of the highest order.It's based on the original BBC scripts but fleshed out appropriately.And it's funny.Very funny.And an eyeopener to how things in British government were really done(still?)
For anyone who loved the original show or for people who love an intelligent,witty read.
