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.

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!"
Yes as its endlessly entertaining and provides light relief in a world of stress and awful news stories!
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.
Very similar and equally enjoyable
Not really the reaction to Dad's Army -
Lovely to be able to hear all the familiar voices again and enjoy the whacky comments and situations they find themselves in.
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.
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.
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.
Well worth the money, and time invested into listening.
Careful when listening it made me laugh out loud embarrassing when your in a public place. If you loved the TV episodes you'll love this,
"wonderful classic series........."
loved it.....am starting It again.......Arthur Lowe sounds very slurred in last episode!!!!!!!Long live British humour!
I've listened to all the dads army series and this is the best one yet - can't help but laugh out loud! A real feel good listen! Highly recommended!
"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!
Effortlessly funny, dads army is one of my favourite things, I could listen over and over again! Couldn't recommend enough
Loved this show! Can listen over and over! - great lines well delivered! Would certainly recommend!
