Happy Birthday Jimmy Perry! The genius behind Dad's Army turns 90



This interview of mine with the great comedy writer Jimmy Perry, who is 90 today, is in the Daily Telegraph.

Is there anyone living in Britain today who has contributed more to our Gross National Happiness than Jimmy Perry? This is the man who not only created and co-wrote the nation’s best loved and most enduring comedy series, Dad’s Army, but who also, along with his writing partnerDavid Croft, gave us two other hugely popular shows, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum and Hi De Hi! as well as the witty Upstairs, Downstairs pastiche You Rang, M’Lord?

You can read the whole interview here.

I've also got another piece on the great Jimmy Perry in today's Daily Express.
