Twenty episodes from the second BBC Radio series, starring Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier and Clive Dunn.
In 1973 the BBC adapted its hit TV series for radio, featuring the original TV cast and characters. Three series were broadcast between 1974 and 1976, with episodes adapted from their TV counterparts by Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles.
Now you can enjoy once again these unique recordings, with a supporting cast including John Laurie, Arnold Ridley and Ian Lavender. Among the twenty-one episodes are Don't Forget the Diver, Put That Light Out, Mum's Army, A. Wilson - Manager, and The Day the Balloon Wendt Up.

As always brilliant, a true radio classic as it was recorded as a separate entity to the TV show.
Have loved it for nigh on thirty years and counting. Back when people could write comedy.
Great stuff , loved listening to it just as good s the TVs programmes , enjoyed very much , got all them .
STILL SO FUNNY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS AS ALREADY SAID....
BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT UTTERLY BRILLIANT.
"best comedy "
great comedy. comedy every one can enjoy shame the cast nearly all gone now .can't beat it .
Excellent as usual all the usual high quality we came to expect from the tv series
"Fantastic old British comedy, so professional"
easy to return too over and over again. typical BBC quality and great actors. recommended
"A Masterclass in Comedy"
Without doubt one of the best comedy television programs ever created this audio has succeeded where many have failing in being translated into an audiobook. Full of wit, charm and nostalgia Volume Two has continued the high standards set by the first volume and will keep you laughing hour after hour!
as the whole cast perform in radio format no narration is required. the cross over from TV to Audio is done so skillfully you won't necessarily notice. it is great to listen to when tired and slowly dream you are one of the team.
"They never age"
From the pompous Capt Mainwaring to stupid boy Pike this recording highlights why this particular program was such a hit. Story lines which are perfectly believable enacted but a group of bumbling misfits. Brilliant!
Absolutely fantastic, excellent!! Truly remarkable, well done, you will love it!! Its better than any new comedy out there.
