Written over a period of twenty-five years, the four series--Dads Army, It Aint Half Hot, Mum, Hi-de-Hi and You Rang MLord?--have endured as much-loved and often-repeated classics.

The book explores the themes of Perry and Crofts writing in terms of their own biography, and as articulations of British cultural and televisual history. Focusing on issues central to the concept of identity in British culture, class, gender, sexuality and race and analyzing individual episodes and scenes in the four series, this book evaluates the contributions made by these two writers to the genre of situation comedy, and locates the programs in the immediate contexts of their production.
