Buy a game minister 2

Postby Vicage В» 12.03.2019

.

Split over three seven-episode series, it was first transmitted on BBC2 from to A sequel, Yes, Prime Minister , ran for 16 episodes from to All but one of the episodes lasted half an hour, and almost all ended with a variation of the title of the series spoken as the answer to a question posed by Minister later, Prime Minister Jim Hacker.

Several episodes were adapted for BBC Radio ; the series also spawned a stage play that led to a new television series on Gold in Set principally in the private office of a British Cabinet minister in the fictional Department of Administrative Affairs in Whitehall , Yes Minister follows the ministerial career of Jim Hacker , played by Paul Eddington.

His various struggles to formulate and enact policy or effect departmental changes are opposed by the British Civil Service , in particular his Permanent Secretary , Sir Humphrey Appleby , played by Sir Nigel Hawthorne. The sequel, Yes, Prime Minister , continued with the same cast and followed Jim Hacker after his unexpected elevation to Number 10 upon the resignation of the previous Prime Minister.

The series opens in the wake of a general election in which the incumbent government has been defeated by the opposition party, to which Jim Hacker MP belongs. His party affiliation is never stated, and his party emblem is clearly neither Conservative nor Labour. While Appleby is outwardly deferential towards the new minister, he is prepared to defend the status quo at all costs. Woolley is sympathetic towards Hacker but as Appleby reminds him, Woolley's civil service superiors, including Appleby, will have much to say about the course of his future career i.

Many of the episodes revolve around proposals backed by Hacker but frustrated by Appleby, who uses a range of clever stratagems to defeat ministerial proposals while seeming to support them. Other episodes revolve around proposals promoted by Appleby but rejected by Hacker, which Appleby attempts by all means necessary to persuade Hacker to accept.

They do occasionally join forces in order to achieve a common goal, such as preventing the closure of their department or dealing with a diplomatic incident. As the series revolves around the inner workings of central government, most of the scenes take place in private locations, such as offices and exclusive members' clubs. Lynn said that "there was not a single scene set in the House of Commons because government does not take place in the House of Commons. Some politics and much theatre takes place there.

Government happens in private. As in all public performances, the real work is done in rehearsal, behind closed doors. Then the public and the House are shown what the government wishes them to see. At the time of the making of the series, television cameras were not allowed in the House of Commons and had only recently been introduced into the House of Lords , so it was not unusual to a British audience to have no scenes from there. He spent a good deal of time in Parliament on the Opposition benches before his party won a general election.

Hacker received his degree from the London School of Economics graduating with a Third , for which he is often derided by the Oxford-educated Sir Humphrey who attended "Baillie College", a thinly-veiled reference to the real Balliol College , graduating with a First in Classics. Before long, Hacker begins to notice that Civil Service tactics are preventing his planned changes being put into practice.

As he learns, he becomes more sly and cynical, using some of the Civil Service ruses himself. While Sir Humphrey initially held all the aces, Hacker now and again plays a trump card of his own. Throughout Yes Minister, Hacker, at his worst, is portrayed as a publicity-seeking bungler who is incapable of making a firm decision.

He is prone to potentially embarrassing blunders, and is a frequent target of criticism from the press and stern lectures from the Chief Whip.

However, he is also shown to be relatively politically savvy, and he slowly becomes more aware of Sir Humphrey's real agenda. In Yes, Prime Minister, Hacker becomes more statesmanlike. He practises more grandiose speeches, dreams up his "Grand Design" and hones his diplomatic skills. Nearly all of these efforts land him in trouble. In a Radio Times interview to promote Yes, Prime Minister , Paul Eddington stated, "He's beginning to find his feet as a man of power, and he's begun to confound those who thought they'd be able to manipulate him out of hand.

He is appointed Cabinet Secretary just as Hacker's party enters a leadership crisis, and is instrumental in Hacker's elevation to Prime Minister. He is committed to maintaining the status quo for the country in general and for the Civil Service in particular. However, although presenting an outward appearance of supreme confidence and competence, Sir Humphrey is not immune to making miscalculations or outright blunders. When such blunders occur, he relies on the Civil Service bureaucracy to save him.

And can I see if he's reading it from an idiot board Loquacious and verbose, he frequently uses both his mastery of the English language and his grasp of Latin and Greek grammar both to perplex his political master and to obscure the relevant issues.

In a Radio Times interview to promote the second series of Yes, Prime Minister , producer Sydney Lotterby stated that he always tried to give Eddington and Hawthorne extra time to rehearse as their scenes invariably featured lengthy dialogue exchanges.

While in theory he is personally responsible to Hacker, it is in practice Sir Humphrey who writes his performance reviews and influences his Civil Service career. He usually handles these situations well, and maintains his reputation in the Civil Service as a "high flier" as opposed to a "low flier supported by occasional gusts of wind.

Woolley is always quick to point out the physical impossibilities of Sir Humphrey's or Hacker's mixed metaphors , with almost obsessive pedantry. He can occasionally appear rather childlike, by making animal noises and gestures or by acting out how such an analogy cannot work, which sometimes annoys his Minister.

Woolley tends to side with Hacker when new policies are announced, because they seem radical or democratic, only for Sir Humphrey to point out the disadvantages to the status quo and the civil service in particular.

To sway Bernard, Sir Humphrey uses phrases such as "barbarism" and "the beginning of the end". In a retrospective, Armando Iannucci commented that Fowlds had a difficult task because he had to "spend most of his time saying nothing but looking interested in everyone else's total and utter guff" but "his one line frequently had to be the funniest of the lot. Lynn joined the Cambridge Union in his first year at the University of Cambridge because he thought that he might like to enter politics.

They were all behaving as if they were on the government front bench, and twenty years later they all were: Michael Howard ; John Selwyn Gummer ; Kenneth Clarke. I thought at that point that the only way that I could ever contribute to politics is making fun of the politicians. The series, then, intended to satirise politics and government in general, rather than any specific party.

The writers placed Hacker at the centre of the political spectrum, and were careful to identify his party headquarters as "Central House" a combination of Conservative Central Office and Labour's Transport House. The terms " Labour " and " Conservative " are scrupulously avoided throughout the series, favouring terms such as "the party" or "the Government" and "the opposition".

The one exception to this neutrality occurs very briefly in " The National Education Service ", when Sir Humphrey explains to Bernard how the policy of comprehensive education is retained through successive governments, using different arguments according to which party is in power. Even there, Humphrey does not reveal which party Jim Hacker represents. Despite this, the overall thrust was towards government reduction rather than expansion. The episode " Jobs for the Boys ", for example, rejected corporatism.

Although Lynn comments that the word " spin " has "probably entered the political vocabulary since the series," [6] Iannucci suggests that the show "taught us how to unpick the verbal tricks that politicians think they can get away with in front of the cameras. This is particularly evident in the episode " The Ministerial Broadcast ", in which Hacker is advised on the effects of his clothes and surroundings. The episode " A Conflict of Interest " humorously lampoons the various political stances of Britain's newspapers through their readers although this material was not original : [15].

Hacker: Don't tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the papers: the Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country; The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country; The Times is read by the people who actually do run the country; the Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country; the Financial Times is read by people who own the country; the Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country ; and The Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is.

Bernard: Sun readers don't care who runs the country, as long as she's got big tits. Adam Curtis , in his three-part TV documentary The Trap , criticised the series as "ideological propaganda for a political movement", [16] and claimed that Yes Minister is indicative of a larger movement of criticism of government and bureaucracy, centred upon public choice economics.

Jay himself supported this:. The fallacy that public choice economics took on was the fallacy that government is working entirely for the benefit of the citizen; and this was reflected by showing that in any [episode] in the programme, in Yes Minister , we showed that almost everything that the government has to decide is a conflict between two lots of private interest — that of the politicians and that of the civil servants trying to advance their own careers and improve their own lives.

And that's why public choice economics, which explains why all this was going on, was at the root of almost every episode of Yes Minister and Yes, Prime Minister. The writers were inspired by a variety of sources, including sources inside government, published material and contemporary news stories.

The writers also met several leading senior civil servants under the auspices of the Royal Institute of Public Administration , a think-tank for the public service sector, which led to the development of some plot lines. Some situations were conceived as fiction, but were later revealed to have real-life counterparts.

The episode " The Compassionate Society " depicts a hospital with five hundred administrative staff but no doctors, nurses or patients. Lynn recalls that "after inventing this absurdity, we discovered there were six such hospitals or very large empty wings of hospitals exactly as we had described them in our episode.

In a programme screened by the BBC in early , paying tribute to the series, it was revealed that Jay and Lynn had drawn on information provided by two insiders from the governments of Harold Wilson and James Callaghan , namely Marcia Williams and Bernard Donoughue. The episode entitled " The Moral Dimension ", in which Hacker and his staff engage in the scheme of secretly consuming alcohol on a trade mission to the fictional Islamic state of Qumran, was based on a real incident that took place in Pakistan , involving Callaghan and Donoughue, the latter of whom informed Jay and Lynn about the incident.

That's why it was so funny. We couldn't think up things as funny as the real things that had happened. Fusing inspiration and invention, Lynn and Jay worked on the story "for anything from three days to two weeks," and only took "four mornings to write all the dialogue. After we wrote the episode, we would show it to some secret sources, always including somebody who was an expert on the subject in question. They would usually give us extra information which, because it was true, was usually funnier than anything we might have thought up.

For security purposes, the arrangements of the rooms were altered, and the views from the windows were never shown, to conceal the layout of the buildings. The opening titles were drawn by artist and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe , who provided distinctive caricatures of Eddington, Hawthorne and Fowlds in their respective roles to represent distortion. The sequence ended with the title of the episode superimposed on a facsimile of an edition of the House of Commons Weekly Information Bulletin.

Scarfe created a second set of graphics for Yes, Prime Minister , including a different title card for each episode. Derek Fowlds wanted to buy an original drawing but was unable to afford it. The typeface used in the credits is Plantin , a common typeface used in the British press at the time. The show title is set in bold condensed and the credits are in bold.

The theme music was composed by Ronnie Hazlehurst and is largely based on the Westminster Quarters : the chimes of Big Ben. When asked in an interview about its Westminster influence, Hazlehurst replied, "That's all it is. It's the easiest thing I've ever done. The final version of the titles and music had yet to be agreed, and both differ substantially from those used for subsequent instalments.

The opening and closing title caption cards feature drawings of most of the cast, but are less exaggerated than those of Scarfe, while the unaccredited music is a more up-tempo piece for brass band. The Scarfe and Hazlehurst credits were used for some repeat broadcasts of the first episode, but the original pilot credits were retained for the DVD release. The different ideals and self-interested motives of the characters are frequently contrasted.

Whilst Hacker occasionally approaches an issue from a sense of idealism and a desire to be seen to improve things, he ultimately sees his re-election and elevation to higher office as the key measures of his success.

Accordingly, he must appear to the voters to be effective and responsive to the public will. To his party and, in the first incarnation of the series, the Prime Minister he must act as a loyal and effective party member. Sir Humphrey, on the other hand, genuinely believes that the Civil Service, being politically impartial, has the most realistic idea of what "good governance" means, and therefore knows what is best for the country — a belief shared by his bureaucratic colleagues.

Hacker sees the job of government as one of "doing good", [25] or more specifically reforming the country according to his own party's policies: which, more often than not, means the initiation of departmental reforms and economies, a reduction of the level of bureaucracy and reduction of staff numbers in the Civil Service.

To do so, or to at least look as if he is doing so, is what he considers to be a vote-winner.
