Yes Minister & Yes Prime Minister - The Complete Audio Collection
- By: Antony Jay, Jonathan Lynn
- Narrated by: Paul Eddington, full cast, Nigel Hawthorn
- Length: 18 hrs and 28 mins

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.
Entertaining and funny

Still relevant after all these years. Wonderfully scripted. i have dealt with many a Sir Humphrey Appleby in my time.
