Stephen Murray, Leslie Phillips, Jon Pertwee, and Tenniel Evans star in four episodes of the classic BBC radio sitcom. "Helen, the New Wren," "Black is Beautiful," "Sidney and the Stamp," and "Commander Murray Becomes a Showjumper." The crew of HMS Troutbridge return in these four classic episodes of the long-running comedy series. Two new WRENs arrives on the scene, and Mr. Murray becomes green-eyed at an apparent love rival. The First Sea Lord appeals for anyone to locate his missing son, and CPO Pertwee tries to capitalize on a resemblance to Mr Phillips. Later, Mr. Phillips becomes one half of a vent act, and Mr. Murray competes to be Naval Horseman of the Year. As ever, nothing goes quite according to plan.

About the Author
The Navy Lark is the second longest-running comedy in British radio history. The crew of HMS Troutbridge were a motley bunch: Jon Pertwee, who actually served in the Navy during the Second World War, played the conniving Petty Officer and was established as a household favourite by the series. Leslie Phillips was the vague chinless wonder Sub-Lieutenant. The young Ronnie Barker also appeared in the series, playing two parts: (Un)Able Seaman Fatso Johnson and Lieutenant-Commander Stanton. The Navy Lark gripped the nation for the best part of twenty years.
