LOSE YOURSELF IN 1968
The first episode of Dad’s Army was screened by BBC TV on 31 July 1968. The Warmington-on-Sea platoon of the Home Guard soon won a loyal following among viewers with the crack team of comedy actors’ lighthearted humour. It ran to nine series – the final episode was first screened on 13 November 1977.
A month later anyone heading to the cinema for a holiday treat would’ve been treated to the UK release of The Graduate. Dustin Hoffman starred a as Benjamin when the wife of his father’s best friend, played by Anne Bancroft, gets him alone. The plot gets complicated when Benjamin falls for her daughter, Elaine.
