Yes Minister is 40 years old and to celebrate we’ll be joined by writer and director Jonathan Lynn, who co-wrote the popular TV series with Antony Jay. Lynn has selected a favourite episode, ‘Party Games’, in which Jim Hacker decides to run for leader of the party and makes a European issue part of his campaign. The episode acts as a bridge between Yes Minister and Yes, Prime Minister and is a reminder that while time may move on, in politics very little changes.
