From 1959 to 1977, The Navy Lark sailed the airwaves as one of BBC Radio's longest-running comedy programmes.
Amongst the many stars who served time on HMS Troutbridge were John Pertwee, Leslie Phillips, Ronnie Barker and Tenniel Evans. Now Fred Vintner, the President of The Navy Lark Appreciation Society, has selected four favourite episodes for you to enjoy: 'An Exercise in Filming' (28 June 1959); 'The Lighthouse Lark' (29 January 1960); 'A Deliberate Bashing' (19 April 1963) and 'Tug-of-War' (19 February 1960). This CD edition also includes his specially-written introductory sleeve note, explaining just what makes the programme so magical. 2 CDs. 2 hrs.
