Those Radio Times - 12 Days Of Christmas: Dad's Army

Dad's Army - Radio Times, Christmas 1971
A new series of Dad's Army had been absent from the TV schedules during 1971.

However; a spring / summer repeat of the 1970 series and the cinematic release of a feature film of Jimmy Perry and David Croft's popular show warranted the BBC to bring the show back for a one hour special entitled Battle Of The Giants  for Boxing Day 1971 (which took place on the 27th December).

In Christmas 1974  Battle Of The Giants was adapted for radio alongside another episode, Shooting Pains by Michael Knowles and Harold Snoad to make another festive edition broadcast on BBC Radio 4 entitled Present Arms.

The Walmington-On-Sea platoon was certainly in jovial mood for this image of them enjoying Christmas festivities wartime style.
