How to Make the Perfect Sitcom

Captain Mainwaring WritesSince there are rumours circulating about the making of a new Dad’s Army film we feel it is time to offer some advice to the producers and writers to help them avoid making a complete louse-up of a national treasure.

With the help of Miss Beckwith from the library we have delved into the Walmington-on-Line archive and dug out a Radio 4 programme, First Draft, originally broadcast sometime in the late 1990s.

The program is about the process of making a successful sitcom, and a lot of time is given-over to Dad’s Army as well as other classic sitcoms of the 70s and early 80s.┬áSadly we don’t have a copy of the the second part of the programme – if anyone out there has it we’d love to hear a copy.
