"Little namby-pamby darlings just off their potties…"

On 9th February 2009, NETWORK will GET SOME IN - THE COMPLETE SECOND SERIES (PG). This is the first time that the complete second series is available in any format, RRP £14.99.

It is 1955, eighteen - year olds are getting their call-up papers for National Service. Embarking on two years in the RAF Skelton are the well-mannered and grammar school-educated Ken (David Janson); tough and cynical Scottish boy Bruce Leckie (Brian Pettifer); London Teddy - Boy Jakey Smith (Robert Lindsay) who dislikes the whole idea of National Service but who also has a heart of gold; yet another well-spoken, well-mannered and privately educated boy Matthew (Gerard Ryder), who also happens to be the son of a vicar. Unbeknownst to them, what awaits is the forceful and typically tough Drill Instructor Corporal Marsh (Tony Selby) with a sadistic sense of humour, and is gearing up to make the new recruits' lives miserable.

Inspired by the successful The Army Game and the nostalgic Dad's Army, writers John Esmonde and Bob Larbey (Please Sir!) set about writing and creating another show that would emulate the success of the aforementioned army - based series, but from a fresh perspective and revived energy. The result is this RAF - based sitcom GET SOME IN, which ran from 1975 - 1978 and was much loved and enjoyed by viewers all over the country.

Severe bad weather and a fuel shortage result in coke rationing, and 'C' Flight are incensed by Marsh's habit of stealing their hut's supplies; Bruce Leckie's ploy to thwart him is a great success. Meanwhile, Ken meets Mrs Squadron Leader Fairfax…

When Jakey receives a letter from his mother informing him of his granddad's imminent ejection from his house, he decides to take matters into his own hands… by going A.W.O.L.

It's Field Exercise Day: 'C' Flight are dropped 15 miles from the camp with no idea of where they are, and told to make their way back. The RAF regiment are detailed to stop them, and it doesn't look as though they will make it - to Marsh's satisfaction.
