Comedy If You Go Down To The Woods Today followed a boy scout troupe on manoeuvres in Tangle Woods who find themselves under the surveillance of MI5 as well as various military branches and crooks.
A typical slice of Eric Sykes star-studded comedy, he had actually made a version before in 1973 called You Had Better Go In Disguise. This was a feature film version that never actually got released. The cast for that included Hattie Jacques, Arthur Lowe, Simon Oates, Stratford Johns, William Mervyn, Bob Todd, Bill Maynard and Richard Wattis.
