IT AIN'T HALF HOT MUM by Jimmy Perry & David Croft
Wartime comedy. India, 1945: A British Army concert party is charged with entertaining the fighting troops in the Pacific Theatre during World War 2.
The dodge-the-column exploits of the Royal Artillery Concert Party during the Second World War, a motley troupe of thespians whose main objective is to stay as far away from the fighting as possible...
Meet the gang in four classic episodes! (Good quality recordings from my cassette collection.)
In 'My Lovely Boy', when Sgt Major Williams realises the love of his life is Gunner Parkin's mother, he sets about recruiting the talentless Parkin for the Concert Party, to keep him from being sent to the Front.
In 'The Supremo Show', a VIP visit calls for a very special show. But when the star turn, Gloria, sprains his ankle, the Sergeant Major -- who hates everything to do with show business -- must take his place.
In 'We Are Not Amused', Gloria plays Queen Victoria in a patriotic British pageant -- but the men don't realise they'll be playing to an Indian audience.
In 'Money Talks', when it's discovered that Mr La-Di-Da Gunner Graham is due to receive an inheritance, the officers and the men all set about winning his favour.
Starring Windsor Davies, Melvyn Hayes, Don Estelle and Michael Bates. With Donald Hewlett and Michael Knowles.
Meet the gang, 'cos the boys are here --
The boys to entertain you!
With music and laughter, to help you on your way,
To raising the rafters, with a hey! hey! hey!
With songs, and sketches, and jokes old and new --
