The corridors of power will never be the same again. The Rt. Ho. James Hacker PC, MP, BSc (Econ) has made the ultimate political journey: to No. 10. And his newly appointed Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby is on hand to advise, encourage, and look after No. 1. Now this legendary partnership can steer a course through the twists, turns, and minefields of bureaucracy and government in four more classic episodes from the highly successful BBC television series.

Imagine you could travel back to the 14th century. What would you see? What would you smell? More to the point, where are you going to stay? And what are you going to eat? Ian Mortimer shows us that the past is not just something to be studied; it is also something to be lived. He sets out to explain what life was like in the most immediate way, through taking you to the Middle Ages. The result is the most astonishing social history book you are ever likely to read: evolutionary in its concept, informative and entertaining in its detail.

Another volume of the best episodes from the classic BBC radio comedy series, which took comedy to a new level of outrageousness in the late 1960s. Kenneth Horne is the suave host, whilst around him orbit those no-holds-barred satellites Kenneth Williams, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick, and Bill Pertwee. Regular characters Julian and Sandy and Rambling Syd Rumpo make a number of appearances, in amongst the usual comedy collage of sketches, songs, spoof series, and news reports.
