Four episodes of classic comedy from the days when the Civil Service had a sense of humour:

The Men from the Ministry were the hilarious radio forerunners of TV's Yes Minister, bungling bureaucrats who bungled for fifteen glorious years from 1962 to 1977.

Muddling through were Wilfrid Hyde White, as the first head of the ubiquitous General Assistance Department, and the imperturbable Deryck Guyler, who followed him in 1966. Richard Murdoch was their faithfully incompetent Number Two. Together they created absolute chaos - and an enduring and influential Whitehall spoof.

Here, with the help of guests like Warren Mitchell and Roy Dotrice, they mismanage a new road scheme, upset Britain's space programme, confuse the export drive and attempt to rescue a forgotten army unit.

Their potty exploits remain - in the inimitable words of the BBC announcer -

'a tribute to

the men of our Government service, those men who are sometimes compared to tea bags: they always stick together when they get into hot water. '

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
