Summary

Few can forget where they were 20 years ago when they first heard Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation.

The show was an immediate smash-hit success, causing pubs to empty on a Saturday night, which was particularly astonishing since the show went out on Thursdays. Since that fateful first series, the show has gone on to win Sony awards, Writers Guild nominations, and a Nobel Prize for Chemistry with lines like "Kids should never be fashion slaves, especially in the Far East. My 12-year-old daughter asked me for a new pair of trainers. I told her she was old enough to go out and make her own."

This series featured a revamped format in which famous actresses were invited onto the show to face Jeremy's kindly indifference. Guest stars include Rebecca Front (The Thick of It), Pauline McLynn (Father Ted), Alison Steadman (Gavin & Stacey) and Juliet Stevenson (Truly Madly Deeply)

This is the Complete Sixth Series, and contains four episodes, including:

  • How to Be Afraid
  • How to Argue Your Position
  • How to Choose
  • How to Live Life to the Full

the best self-development lectures?

I have much in common with Mr Hardy, for example being "over 40" and having been to the same University ("the only one which applied to be a Polytechnic"). I don't always share his trenchant left-wing political views but love the barbed wit that goes with them.
These collections of his BBC R4 series are worthy of repeat listens. They have so many gags that it can be hard to keep up. A great way to pass a journey!
