Synopsis:

Political satire is at its sharpest in these four classic capers from the corridors of power. In 'Open Government', the newly-appointed Minister for Administrative Affairs, the Rt. Hon. James Hacker, meets his machiavellian Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey, who persuades him that good government is not always open government. 'Big Brother' finds Hacker seeking support from the opposition in order to overcome the opposition of his support. Hacker and Humphrey battle it out over Hacker's proposal to restrict civil-servant access to a powerful information database. 'The Economy Drive' sees Jim Hacker on a quest to trim government waste by implementing an economy drive that ends up driving him out into the rain and straight into Sir Humphrey's hands. And in 'The Writing on the Wall', the craze for cutbacks strikes too close to home when the office of Administrative Affairs is placed on the chopping block. Sir Humphrey has never been more needed...
