This brilliant and hilarious series chronicles the blunders of the fictitious Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship, a government department barely registering on the national radar. In this Ministry, every announcement is followed by a whirlwind of u-turns; every policy is a scramble and every mishap is met with abuse from the Prime Minister's policy enforcer. Garlanded with rave reviews and packed with awards, this irreverent, brilliantly swear-filled, and painfully funny series is justly seen as a jewel in the BBC's crown.
