Making Of Dad’s Army

The true story of how the legendary writers of Dad’s Army, Jimmy Perry and David Croft, overcame every obstacle thrown at them – from a cast of uniquely challenging personalities to fierce opposition to the idea from within the highest ranks of the BBC – to create one of the most beloved and successful sitcoms of all time – told in a time frame from Perry and Croft’s first meeting about PERRY’s original script in 1967 to the broadcast of the very first Dad’s Army episode on 31 July 1968.
