Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister - Complete Collection [DVD] [1980]

As the Politicians say this does a great public service by telling you how government really works. Funny and true too. If you believe it implies that the civil service run the country and the Prime minister is a puppet or seems that way.

Ken Dodd said "Aristotle described humour as a buckled mill wheel. That is life out of true."

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful amazing brilliant pure theatre, 13 Sept. 2013
I rented some films on Love film and when I saw this I had to buy it. The phantom wants love and loses. Pure passion drama and theatre undoubtedly no penny was spared in making this production as they would get there money back on sales. The Phantom is amazing. The singing by Christine is amazing. It got at my emotions and my heart very rare in any film or theatre production. Clearly designed for the viewers on Blue ray DVD. I rather suspect you would not have this level of grandeur at a normal theatre. It has ballet dance and opera style? Singing. If you buy only one musical it has to be this. I Prefer it more than Joseph and thats great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 3 Sept. 2013
It is made to order and customer specification. It was best value for pure wood in its price band I felt. Top end of my budget. As it could not be delivered in one piece they built it in two parts delivered it then the men joined it together. a £25 charge for this. Never the less in comparison to other bookcases in high streets it still represents value for money it is all pine and even back board is wood.

They did what they said they would do delivery even give you drivers name and mobile number to contact him. I would totally recommend.

The male lead does some amazing jumps. Filmed live at The Bolshoi theater and an interview with the choreographer. Not your normal Petipa Balanchine ballet. Mum liked it too. Is a revived ballet that was running for 30 years previously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Use as a kid and I still love it, 21 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Noel (Audio CD)
This is not electronic but pure guitar recorder the instrument and not an all singing choir pop rock dance electric keyboards drum machines synths Xmas album.

Joan baez Voice is out front. guitar drums lightly and recorder. I can't describe it. If you love Joan Baez then worth it. If not but love Xmas albums and want something a little different buy it.

I listened to it as a kid all of 40 years ago and loved it then and I still love it now. For me and my taste the best Xmas album ever. Love love love it.

He may have been getting on but this proves you do not have to swear to get laughs. An older generation but still brilliant. Forgotten how funny he was.

If you want a laugh you can't go wrong with this even if you are young and never heard of him or seen him before.

Get friends round and just have a great night in. Doesn't get better than this.

Fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Less is more, 28 July 2010
This is without doubt the most researched biography I have read on Beatrix Potter being a specialist interest. The research done is amazing. No stone is left unturned. Every detail you want and don't want is there descriptions of her farmers people she met there sons who took an interest in her books. Nothing is missed and I mean nothing.

Unfortunatly this book is a case of less is more. I sometimes just put the book down after reading desriptions of someones son who was good looking, had blonde hair and blue eyes. Many bits of conversation are included. One friend read the book to review it for a book group and by the time she got to the end she had forgotten about the start so switched to reading Margaret Lanes biography (also on Amazon and published a few years after Beatrix Death. Revised in 1985) which is not so long and detailed but tells you all about her.

If you want a complete scholarly work or doing research then this is your book. No detail is missed and I mean NO detail.

5 stars for the work, collection of information and vast amount of knowledge. The authors research is quite incredible. However if you want a more general read I would probably suggest Margaret Lanes book. One star was deducted as I think it has too much information. A case of less is more.

Still great if its your kind of book.
