Description

The story of an ordinary man who lived through extraordinary times. Told with love, laughter and song. A touching and funny tribute to Arthur Smith's father, Syd Smith, who fought at El Alamein; became a Prisoner of War and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany. In the 1950s Syd Smith joined the Metropolitan Police and patrolled London's South Bank, meeting a gallery of characters whom he tried his best not to arrest. Directed by Kevin Day. 'Phenomenal... Amusing, engrossing and inspirational' (Chortle.co.uk). 'You will come out feeling better about the world' (Guardian).
