Review

Lance Corporal Jones wouldn’t have approved. Victoria Wood crunches the gears of his butcher’s van as she pootles around familiar Norfolk locations for her fabulous 2000 tribute to Croft and Perry’s immortal sitcom. Cast and crew chip in with glorious back-room stories (Bill “Hodges” Pertwee is especially good), and there are tantalising glimpses in home-movie footage of the actors on location.

Summary

Victoria Wood celebrates Jimmy Perry and David Croft's comedy about the misadventures of a Home Guard platoon during the Second World War. Featuring clips of classic scenes, footage of the cast on location and reminiscences about the making of the series from stars of the show including Ian Lavender (Private Pike), Clive Dunn (Lance-Corporal Jones) and Bill Pertwee (ARP Warden Hodges).
