  • Description

    All the episodes from series one to eight of Jimmy Perry and David Croft's It Ain't Half Hot Mum, first broadcast in 1974. The series follows the exploits of a Royal Artillery Concert Party during the Second World War. Created by David Croft and Jimmy Perry, it seemed a natural follow-up to their smash hit Dad's Army. Another ensemble piece, it drew on both writers' wartime experience in India and set the action in Deolali: a British army camp 100 miles north-east of Bombay where everyone's gone 'a bit doolally'.

    The concert party is a rag-tag collection of soldiers who'd rather sing, dance and drag up to entertain the troops than be sent forward to the front line. Characters include effeminate drag artist Gunner 'Gloria' Beaumont (Melvyn Hayes); the diminutive Gunner 'Lofty' Willie Sugden (Don Estelle) who possesses a hauntingly beautiful singing voice and ineffectual Colonel Reynolds (Donald Hewlett). However, the show's stand-out personality is the bombastic, eye-rolling Battery Sergeant Major Williams (Windsdor Davies).

It Aint Half Hot Mum - Series 1-8

I was very pleased to find this It Aint Half Hot Mum box set, especially at such a competitive price. It's a series (set in India and Burma during World War II) which brings back many memories for my husband of his time there when he was a slip of a lad. The BBC won't repeat it as it is deemed too racist in today's climate, which is a pity because it's very funny and my husband tells me life really was like that for the British Army at that time.
