Overview

This home video release features three episodes from the sequel to the popular British situation comedy Yes, Minister, following the political misadventures of James Hacker (Paul Eddington) after he suddenly rises from Minister for Administrative Affairs to Prime Minister of Parliament; of course, his old partners (and sometimes rivals) Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds) are still on hand to wage comedic verbal battle with Hacker. "The Grand Design" follows Hacker's conflicting emotions when he realizes he has his finger on the button of England's stockpile of nuclear weapons. When Hacker must make his first nationally televised speech, everyone begins coaching him on how to play for the camera in "The Ministerial Broadcast." And Hacker decides to do something about smoking by placing heavy taxes on tobacco in "The Smoke Screen" -- only to earn the enmity of the tobacco industry, as well as the national treasury.
