"Dad's Army" Christmas Special, Present Arms, CD-Audio Book


As the season of goodwill approaches, Captain Mainwaring and his men use their rifles and their wits in a no-holds-barred contest with Captain Square and the Eastgate Platoon.

The prize is the honour of guarding a Very Important Personage.

But in the end it is the ingenuity of Private Walker which saves the day. 'Present Arms' was compiled for radio from two television episodes, 'Battle of the Giants' and 'Shooting Pains', and was first broadcast as a special Christmas edition on BBC Radio 4 in 1974.

Initially written for television, the 'Dad's Army' series ran to 80 episodes and spawned a film, stage show and long-running radio series. 1 CD. 1 hr.
