Dad’s Army is one of the top TV comedy shows of all time, delighting audiences of 18 million between 1968-1977. The exploits of the hapless Capt. Mainwaring and his inept Home Guard platoon are still shown all over the world, including the recent Dad’s Army feature film.

Ian Lavender starred in the original Dad’s Army as Private Pike, whose mum made him wear a scarf “to protect him from the croup”. He shares with writer and broadcaster Chris Serle a generous helping of anecdotes about making the series and about life on location with his fellow soldiers.
