Few can forget where they were 20 years ago when they first heard Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation.
The show was an immediate smash-hit success, causing pubs to empty on a Saturday night, which was particularly astonishing since the show went out on Thursdays. Since that fateful first series, the show has gone on to win Sony awards, Writers Guild nominations, and a Nobel Prize for Chemistry with lines like "Kids should never be fashion slaves, especially in the Far East. My 12-year-old daughter asked me for a new pair of trainers. I told her she was old enough to go out and make her own."
This is the Complete Third Series, and contains six episodes, including:
- How to Be a Man
- How to Bear Up Under the Strain
- How to Make Your Presence Felt
- How to Improve Your Mind
- How to Keep Abreast of Developments
- How to Be Happy

Genuinely amusing though not laugh out loud funny. The content has dated and is coloured by the comedians own political views while this is deliberate it inherantly means that you occasionally find yourself unable to relate to his opinion, robbing it of some comedic potential.
