Yes Prime Minister, Series 1Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


Following his stout stand against the Eurosausage, James Hacker MP has hit the big time and ascended to the highest political office in the land. Now installed in Downing Street, he must quickly find his feet as Prime Minister. Fortunately for the country, his scheming adversary Sir Humphrey Appleby - now Cabinet Secretary - is more than willing to help him steer the unsteady ship of State through the perilous waters of government. Classic satirical comedy starring Paul Eddington and Nigel Hawthorne.

Customer Reviews

Just gets funnier

References to many of the recently revisited political issues, such as MP's expenses and defence policies, make this even funnier today than it was originally. It just never seems to date.

Warning - iTunes have screwed up the meta data!

Ooops! If you buy "Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister" iTunes will mix series one of both together (and presumably series two the same but I haven't got that yet).

Fairly easy mistake to make if you don't know the two series - either treat "Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister" as separate programmes both starting with a series one or treat them both as one programme with "Yes Prime Minister" starting at series four.

I thought I'd lost a series at first and had to go in and adjust the series info myself (just right click and select "Get Info")

So an otherwise 5 star series loses a star to iTunes sloppy handling of meta data.

Fantastically funny

But why doesn't it airplay?
The icon doesn't appear to send it to Apple TV.

The programme is hilarious and still very relevent.
