Old classic, great to hear again without having to wrestle a doorstep book in the bath. Still enjoyable.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, still relevant today even although organisation names have changed politicians haven't and neither have the civil service. A piece of political satire that never grow s old.

I tried so hard, it had been recommended and I was keen to listen. I just couldn't get past the awful narration. I felt like I was 5 again.
