Brains Vs Brawn (Aired April 15, 1975)
Dad's Army is a British sitcom about the Home Guard during World War II. The sitcom aired between 1968 and 1977, and there were a total of eighty episodes spread over nine series, as well as four Christmas specials.[1] Most episodes were also adapted for radio. The show was set in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, on the south coast of England, making the Home Guard the front line of defence against an invasion by the enemy forces across the English Channel, which formed a backdrop to the series. THIS EPISODE: April 15, 1975. "Brains Vs Brawn" - At a business community function, where both Wilson and Walker outshine him, captain Mainwaring accepts a challenge to prove his men are a match for the Home Guard's new, regularly trained, physically superior commando's. Their display of 'brains over brawn' should eliminate the commandos-guarded fuel depot by getting a fake bomb there. A far-fetched plan, dressed up as firemen, ends in the usual brave bumbling from the braves and the for once collaborating verger. Surprises come from a real fire and real brains. 26:42
