In sitcom HMS Paradise a group of sailors are posted to the island of Boonsey off the coast of Dorset. In best Will Hay meets Phil Silvers fashion the gang spend as much time trying to get out of doing stuff and avoiding the wrath of Captain Turvey aka Old Thunderguts.
Series creator Lawrie Wyman was also behind the very similar radio series The Navy Lark.
Guest stars included Clive Dunn, Wendy Richard, Barbara Hicks, John Bluthal, Donald Hewlett, Patrick Troughton, Cardew Robinson and Stanley Unwin. There was a bit of nepotism going on in the case of Clive Dunn, he was married to star Priscilla Morgan.
