It’s Sunday, the weekly roast is prepared, and the family is assembled ready to share a tasty home-cooked meal with conversation and some light entertainment on the wireless. This scenario fit’s most people’s memory of The Navy Lark. For the entire run of 17 years, Tommy Reilly’s evocative rendition of the Tradewind Hornpipe heralded 30 minutes of Naval mayhem. The comedy was set in and around Portsmouth and the Solent with occasional forays onto the high seas in a fictional frigate called HMS Troutbridge. The original lead actors included Dennis Price, Leslie Phillips and Jon Pertwee who were described as stars by the BBC announcer in the program’s introduction and end credits. This was a pre-requisite of the production team, so avoiding the idea that it was a one-person show with a supporting cast. It was an ensemble production, with a very strong team spirit and shared goals for the show. Each episode began with the studio announcer making observations about some aspect of life or work, which provided a link to the storyline- albeit tenuous on occasions.
