A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Sandi Toksvig is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
James Hacker is the British Minister for Administrative Affairs. He tries to do something and cut government waste, but he is continually held back by the smart and wily Permanent Secretary of the Department, Sir Humphrey Appleby. Private secretary Bernard Woolley is caught in the middle, between his political master, and his civil service boss. Written by

From what I know, this is the best TV show I ever saw. Intelligent, complex for a comedy, extremely funny, and excellent acting obviously. Its a classic show, and I hope we have more like these.
It is quite sad that this show has received little attention in north America. It played when I was younger in Canada, but few people noticed. Still, in Grad school in political science in the USA, professors and I were able to expose students to such an intelligent and relatively accessible show. Most students loved it! A must for any student of politics.
I strongly recommend this show to everyone with interest in politics.
