Dad’s Army was a mainstay on TV screens from 1968 to 1977. The show focussed on a loveable yet useless collection of military men in the Home Guard during World War II. Since its release, Dad’s Army has been regarded as one of the best and most-loved British TV shows of all time, alongside the likes of Only Fools and Horses, and Fawlty Towers. Within the first few years of the show’s popularity, it received its first film version of the same story. The 1971 cinematic version of Dad’s Army is the first film adaptation of the same series, and is based on the early material from the series, and utilised such iconic pieces of the show’s comedic repertoire, including the instantly recognisable quip “they don’t like it up them” from Lance Corporal Jones (Clive Dunn).
