Dadâ€™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. The series regularly gained audiences of 18 million viewers and is still repeated today on BBC Two .
The Home Guard consisted of local volunteers otherwise ineligible for military service, usually owing to age, and as such the series starred several veterans of British film, television and stage, including Arthur Lowe (1915â€“82), John Le Mesurier (1912â€“83), Arnold Ridley (also a veteran playwright; 1896â€“1984) and John Laurie (1897â€“1980). Relative youngsters in the regular cast were Ian Lavender (b. 1946), Clive Dunn (b. 1920), who was made-up to play the elderly Jones, and James Beck (1929â€“73), the last-named dying suddenly part way through the programmeâ€™s long run despite being the second youngest cast member.
In 2004, Dad's Army was voted into fourth place in a BBC poll to find Britain's Best Sitcom . Previously, in a list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes drawn up by the British Film Institute in 2000, voted for by industry professionals, it was placed thirteenth. The series has had a profound influence on popular culture in the United Kingdom , with the series' catchphrases and characters well known. It is also credited with having highlighted a hitherto forgotten aspect of defence during World War II. The Radio Times magazine listed Captain Mainwaring's "You stupid boy!" among the 25 greatest put-downs on TV.

An important Note To USA & Canadian Buyers
( American and Canadian buyers should note that although the discs are Multi-Region formatted and will work in Region 1 format they are actually encoded for PAL transmission, therefore it is the buyerâ€™s/ potential buyers responsibility to check their equipment is compatible before purchasing - as refunds will not be given due to Copy & Watch being possible.
With this in mind most modern/ quality NTSC players in America and Canada will still play PAL discs all the same - but this is a decision the overseas buyer will have to make.
Also, should you really wish to purchase but think that your standard DVD player won't be compatible then the DVDs will still work in any PC DVD-ROM drives worldwide. )
