Here are 26 episodes from the third BBC Radio series starring Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, and Clive Dunn, plus the pilot episode of It Sticks Out Half a Mile.
In 1973, the BBC adapted its hit wartime TV series for radio, featuring the original television cast and characters. Three series were broadcast between 1974 and 1976, with episodes adapted by Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles.
Now you can enjoy once again these unique recordings, with a supporting cast including John Laurie, Arnold Ridley and Ian Lavender.
Among the 26 episodes are "A Man of Action", "Keep Young and Beautiful", "Absent Friends", "The Deadly Attachment", "Things That Go Bump in the Night", "My British Buddy", "Asleep in the Deep", "Time on My Hands" and "Is There Honey Still for Tea"?
Also included is the 1981 pilot episode of the radio sequel to Dad's Army, It Sticks Out Half a Mile, starring Arthur Lowe and John Le Mesurier.

A delight - as expected!
Yes as its endlessly entertaining and provides light relief in a world of stress and awful news stories!
The court scene when Arthur Lowe is defending his honour - accused of showing a light! He is shown to be a character of inner strength and integrity. Not just as a figure of fun.
Very similar and equally enjoyable
Not really the reaction to Dad's Army -
Lovely to be able to hear all the familiar voices again and enjoy the whacky comments and situations they find themselves in.
This edition is a great add on to the Dad's Army army. It allowed me to have many of my favourite episodes with me on the move.
The two original audio epsiodes 'A jumbo sized problem' and 'Ten seconds from now' are particular standouts. They are both well performed, and leave wishing that they had been filmed for the regular series.
All of it was a joy to listen to. There were no lulls and the inclusion of the first episode of 'It sticks out half a mile' was a treat too.
Well worth the money, and time invested into listening.
