On Television: An Evening Of Dad's Army Programmes on BBC2

Captain Mainwaring
gets to grips with the enemy.
There's a special treat for Dad's Army fans this evening as BBC Two Wales show two documentaries and a classic episode celebrating the series and the work of David Croft.

The evening gets off to a flying start at 17:40Hrs when there's a repeat of the Victoria Wood fronted documentary from 1998 entitled Don't Panic - The Dad's Army Story. Featuring interviews with Jimmy Perry, David Croft, Clive Dunn and Ian Lavender this programme is a must for Dad's Army fans.

At 18:30 Hrs Captain Mainwaring unexpectedly returns from London to deal with an unruly platoon and an IRA suspect in the 1970 Dad's Army episode Absent Friends.

Finally at 19:00 Hrs there's another chance to see last December's tribute to David Croft with You Have Been Watching... David Croft featuring many examples of David's shows including It Ain't Half Hot Mum, Hi-De-Hi and of course Dad's Army.

Please check local TV listings for regional variations.
