RADIO COMEDY: Dad's Army
Date: 17th May 2008
Dad’s Army is a British sitcom about the Home Guard in the Second World War. It was written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft and broadcast on BBC television between 1968 and 1977. The series ran for 80 episodes in total, plus a radio series, a feature film and a stage show.
Many TV episodes were remade for BBC Radio 4 with the original cast, although other actors played Walker after James Beck’s death. These radio versions were adapted by Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles and also starred John Snagge as a newsreader who would set the scene for each episode. Different actors were used for some of the minor parts; Mollie Sugden played the role of Mrs Fox and Pearl Hackney played the role of Mrs. Pike for example. The pilot episode was actually based on the revised version of events seen in the opening of the film version rather than the TV pilot.
This is a three hour programme from BBC7. It contains 6 episodes of Dad's Army and has a commentary from Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles who adapted theTV series for the radio.
