More About This Title Yes Prime Minister: Series 2, Part 1


Four classic episodes from Series Two of the hit BBC show. "Man Overboard" finds Jim Hacker in favor of moving army regiments to the north to create jobs—until Sir Humphrey hints that the PM’s job is under threat. In "Official Secrets," the former PM’s memoirs have to be scrutinized for security reasons. But Jim realizes that they will make him look bad and tries to suppress their publication. In "A Diplomatic Incident," the death of the former PM provides Jim Hacker with some leverage over negotiations with the French about the Channel Tunnel. And in "A Conflict of Interest," there are rumors of a scandal in the City. Can Sir Humphrey persuade the Prime Minister to choose the right man to become the new Governor of the Bank of England?
