"Dad's Army" Summary

"Dad's Army": The Lost Episodes by Jimmy Perry

The complete scripts for six classic early recordings now missing from the Dad's Army archives. Jimmy Perry and David Croft's Dad's Army ran to 80 episodes and after three decades of regular prime-time repeats the wartime adventures of Walmington-on-Sea's Home Guard have become imprinted on the nation's psyche. However, all but one of the six episodes recorded for season two were accidentally wiped after their first broadcast in 1969, never to be seen again. And, although the recordings themselves can never be recovered, David Croft has unearthed the scripts for those long-lost episodes - "Operation Kit", "The Battle of Godfrey's Cottage", "The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Walker", "Sgt Wilson's Little Secret", "A Stripe For Frazer" and "Under Fire" - dusted them off and specially adapted them for publication.
