: The Navy Lark

with Stephen Murray, Leslie Phillips, Jon Pertwee
A chronicle of events abroad H.M.S. Troutbridge
Written by Lawrie Wyman and involving RICHARD CALDICOT, HEATHER CHASEN, RONNIE BARKER, TENNIEL EVANS, Michael BATES
Announcer, DAVID DUNHILL
Produced by ALASTAIR SCOTT JOHNSTON
Repeated: Wednesday, 8.0 p.m.
Jon Pertwee Is appearing in 'There's a Girl in My Soup' at the Globe Theatre. London

Sub.-Lieut. Phillips and Lieut. Murray
This afternoon H.M.S. Troutbridge recommissions for a further series of adventures in a lengthening chronicle of naval outrage. Whatever else one may say about this motley crew - and many have found the English language inadequate to express their feelings on the subject - no one can deny their incredible capacity for survival in an unkind world. Where anyone else would suffer court martial and disgrace, they slide out from under, leaving many senior, but less agile, gentlemen to take the rap.

The greatest compliment the author, the cast, and I have received, however, is the warmth and friendship we always seem to find in the Royal Navy itself, and this is deeply appreciated by us all. Even our sister ship, H.M.S. Troubridge, having found herself the butt of much ribald humour, now enters harbour with all her loudspeakers belting out our signature tune! She finds this convenient as her progress to the dockside is thereafter remarkably unimpeded.
Even Mr. Harold Wilson, when he was Leader of the Opposition, on being informed in a television interview of some highly unlikely occurrence on his return from a trip to America, was heard to remark 'But this is just like The Navy Lark!' ALASTAIR SCOTT JOHNSTON

The Navy Lark Is repeated on Wednesday evening (Light)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
