Arthur Smith: Syd26th June
Comedian Arthur Smith tells the funny, terrifying story of his father Syd, - an ordinary man who lived through extraordinary times.
Syd Smith fought at El Alamein, became a Prisoner of War and ended up in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany. In the 1950s, as a policeman, he patrolled London’s South Bank and met a gallery of characters, whom he tried his best not to arrest.
Arthur tells this 20th Century story with laughter, amazement and a hilarious photo.
