Publisher's Summary

Here are 26 episodes from the third BBC Radio series starring Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, and Clive Dunn, plus the pilot episode of It Sticks Out Half a Mile.

In 1973, the BBC adapted its hit wartime TV series for radio, featuring the original television cast and characters. Three series were broadcast between 1974 and 1976, with episodes adapted 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 26 episodes are "A Man of Action", "Keep Young and Beautiful", "Absent Friends", "The Deadly Attachment", "Things That Go Bump in the Night", "My British Buddy", "Asleep in the Deep", "Time on My Hands" and "Is There Honey Still for Tea"?

Also included is the 1981 pilot episode of the radio sequel to Dad's Army, It Sticks Out Half a Mile, starring Arthur Lowe and John Le Mesurier.

    "A delight - as expected!"
    Would you listen to Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3 again? Why?

    Yes as its endlessly entertaining and provides light relief in a world of stress and awful news stories!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3?

    The court scene when Arthur Lowe is defending his honour - accused of showing a light! He is shown to be a character of inner strength and integrity. Not just as a figure of fun.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Very similar and equally enjoyable


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really the reaction to Dad's Army -


    Any additional comments?

    Lovely to be able to hear all the familiar voices again and enjoy the whacky comments and situations they find themselves in.

    "Forever funny"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3 to be better than the print version?

    This edition is a great add on to the Dad's Army army. It allowed me to have many of my favourite episodes with me on the move.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3?

    The two original audio epsiodes 'A jumbo sized problem' and 'Ten seconds from now' are particular standouts. They are both well performed, and leave wishing that they had been filmed for the regular series.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    All of it was a joy to listen to. There were no lulls and the inclusion of the first episode of 'It sticks out half a mile' was a treat too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the money, and time invested into listening.

    "Hours Of Laughter & Entertainment"

    A television program converted to an audio is a tricky thing to pull off successfully however with this Dad’s Army program it has been achieved incredibly well! One of the pillars of comedy greatness Dad’s Army has proved time and again to be a hugely entertaining program and this Audio-book is no different. A must have for anyone who loves classic British comedy and is seeking hours of laughter and entertainment!

    "The bumbling captain Mainwaring at his best."

    They certainly dont make them like this anymore. take a walk down memory lane and meet the home guard of Warmington on sea.
    "Dont Panic" its easy listening.
