We're Doomed: The Dad's Army Story (BBC) DVD


The dramatised story of how Jimmy Perry and David Croft overcame BBC management scepticism, focus groups and cast constipation to get the much-loved series onto air. Running from Perry's initial idea in 1967 until the transmission of the first episode in 1968, this affectionate and witty film shows the beginnings of Perry and Croft's writing partnership and the casting woes, personal clashes and production difficulties that put the show's very existence in jeopardy. It reveals to fans and newcomers alike what went on behind the scenes in the making of Dad's Army and is a true love letter to British creativity.

BBC comedy drama depicting the creation of the classic Second World War sitcom 'Dad's Army'. The programme's inception began in 1957 when actor Jimmy Perry (Paul Ritter) showed his friend David Croft (Richard Dormer) the initial idea for the comedy, based on his own experiences in the Home Guard. After changing the original title, the pair find themselves up against the constant scrutiny and interference of the BBC who continue to jeopardise the programme, despite its huge success with British audiences.
