LOSE YOUR­SELF IN 1968

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - 6-page Nostalgia Special -

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.
