Vintage comedy by Jimmy Perry and David Croft. 1940. Britain is on the alert for an imminent Nazi invasion. With full-time troops occupied overseas, the coastal defences are left to a handful of veteran soldiers-The Home Guard. And in Walmington-on-Sea, one inept, feeble and inadequately-armed platoon is very keen to do its bit. Led by the self-appointed Captain Mainwaring (a bank manager nicknamed Napoleon), the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard are a casual, disruptive troop. His second-in-command, Sergeant Wilson, has the breeding Mainwaring lacks but is largely ineffectual. And Corporal Jones, the local butcher and a veteran of the Boer War, tempers his eagerness with an infallible ability to completely mess-up anything he is asked to do. Outstanding among the rest of the platoon are Private Walker, a black marketeer who can lay his hands on anything - for a price; mummy's boy, Private Pike; Private Frazer, a cynical Scottish undertaker who always foresees trouble (and is usually right); and the oldest of them all, the near-incontinent Private Godfrey. With Mainwaring's irritating pomposity, and the platoon's total incompetence, life in the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard is more chaotic than most. Starring Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier and Clive Dunn.

Winner of 3 Writers Guild awards and a BAFTA.

Thanks Emma...:)

Yeah all 5 series aswell works out about 8 quid a dvd, cheap for this absolute classic comedy, which was voted a close second after Only fools and Horses in the greatest british comedys ever produced.

And the sketch where Cap't mainwaring tells pike not to identify himself to the german officer was voted the funniest comedy sketch in a sitcom ever...
