Adapted by Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles from the immensely popular television scripts, Dad’s Army first came to BBC Radio on 26 January 1974. The characters were played by the same actors and all the charm and humour that had made the show such a hit on TV came across equally successfully on the airwaves.

Four BBC Radio episodes from Jimmy Perry and David Croft's classic wartime comedy.

The Day the Balloon went up.
Round and Round went the Great Big Wheel
A Man of Action

From the annals of wartime Britain come four brilliantly funny episodes with Captain Mainwaring's fully trained Home Guard platoon, ever ready to strike terror into the heart of the Wehrmacht from their unit in Walmington-on-Sea. Always prepared to fight to the finish, this endearing team of characters are at their incompetent best in these wonderfully entertaining adventures.

So…get carried away with the platoon's efforts to secure a runaway barrage ballon, be a conscientious objector with Godfrey, watch Captain Mainwaring exercise his authority, and glory as the Home Guard save Walmington-On-Sea from a secret weapon run amok.
