Few can forget where they were 13 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 is the Complete Seventh Series, and contains four episodes: 'How to Feel', 'How to Die', 'How to Believe', 'How to Look'. The co-stars are Miranda Richardson (Black Adder), Pauline McLynn (Father Ted), Alison Steadman (Gavin & Stacey), and Juliet Stevenson.
