Dad's Army crane

Postby 13rebel » Sat Oct 16, 2010 7:37 pm

Did anyone see tonight's episode of Dad's Army (BBC1 at 7.30)? The platoon were stranded on the pier and had the idea to win chocolate bars from a crane, to no avail. The spiv came to the rescue however by banging the machine and was then able to pinch the choccy from the back,. Most of the bars only had cardboard inside - typical! Perhaps someone is clever enough to retrieve this clip from iPlayer and post it on here and even let us know which model of crane it was? !PUZZLED!

Hello
I think that episode was called "Menace From the Deep".
When I last saw that film, I remember thinking the crane was just a film prop. I also think this has already been discussed in this forum.

See clip here - Site Admin.

Yes there is a post on this in September 2008 but clip has been removed, or at least it has on my computer.

I think there is a problem with the clips - I could not view them.

I remember this Dad's Army clip being posted, I expect it will be Youtube that has removed the clip, because of the BBC copyright on it, !WHOOPS!

The link above worked OK for me - hadn't seen that episode for about 25 years! What happened to the Mills? floor wheel machine with the star glass in the background I wonder??

The footage is definately there and viewable through the site. However, initially, when I went to check it out, I too couldn't view it. I think the answer is that people are encountering problems with their security settings, or as a result of clearing out cookies. As I say, initially I couldn't view it. However, I noted that there was a bar across the top of the internet page with a message saying 'this site is trying to run Active X, click here if you want to run this'. I clicked on the bar and after a short spell the footage was viewable. So, I think this is the issue which many are encountering.
