Publisher's Summary

Yes Prime Minister was the equally funny and successful follow-up to Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay's hit series Yes Minister. At the end of that series the well-meaning but incompetent Jim Hacker (Paul Eddington), steered by the invisible cunning of Sir Humphrey (Nigel Hawthorne) finally made it to Number Ten, on the back of (so to speak) the Eurosausage. The show's portrayal of political life was famously enjoyed by the then actual occupant of Number Ten, Margaret Thatcher. These four classic episodes: "A Real Partnership", "A Victory for Democracy", "The Patron of the Arts", "The National Education Service", offer all the wonderfully dry wit of the first series.

A Classic. Wonderful British Sarcasm

Although not as good as Yes Minister, still a wonderful audiobook.
My hero is Sir Humphrey, who personifies all that is wrong with bureaucracy and how to navigate it.
It also tells us how illogical and inflexible the bureaucracy can be when it comes to protecting their interests.
No wonder Thatcher loved this series.
I wish the Series were continued by BBC, as it forms a more better satire than West Wing or other series.

Importing issues with iTunes

How could the performance have been better?

I purchased all three volumes but after Importing in iTunes I only see Vol 1 and Vol2. However windows media player shows all three volumes? Unfortunately I need to use iTunes for my iPod and am not able to use it.
Another annoying part is there is no data for each track. I have seen a short description show for some audio books. Here you get only Track1, Track2 and so on.
