The opener, "Meet the Boys", was originally recorded in January 1973 as a one-off instalment for the BBC's Comedy Playhouse (1961) anthology series (almost certainly for its' twelfth season).

I enjoyed this series when it was originally broadcast. As there is no likelihood of it being broadcast again,I bought The box?box set and have just finished it.It is very funny,almost as good as Dads Army.It does have problems. Michael Bates,blacked up,as the bearer, makes it unacceptable for broadcastimg,as does the homophobic rants by the Sergeant Major. Furthermore it has to be said that many of the Indian characters are drawn in an unsympathetic light..
