Dad’s Army is one of Britain’s favourite ever sitcoms. With regular viewing figures of 12 million and popular repeats to this day, it’s as funny now as it ever was and each generation brings a whole new group of fans – not bad for a show that got no laughter on its first studio record and was nearly pulled after one series.
We Love Dad’s Army, charts the story of the show from humble beginnings to smash hit.
This show celebrates all the iconic catchphrases, the hilarious stunts and goes behind the scenes to discover what happened when the cameras stopped rolling, with insight from former cast member Ian Lavender who had no idea that his character, Pike, would be responsible for the most famous line of the series.
Featuring contributions from Jonathan Ross, John Thompson, Al Murray, Eammon Holmes, Dame Kelly Holmes and many others. We Love Dad’s Army is a celebration of one of Britain’s most beloved sitcoms.
We Love Dad’s Army airs on Channel 5 in September.
