Click Image to Enlarge
Film version of the hit BBC radio series of an incompetent naval crew based on an island just off the south coast of Britain.
The commander spends all his time fishing, the second officer is a serial womaniser and just about everyone else pass their time by smuggling and other nefarious
activities. When they hear that their masters want to shut down the base and transfer them to other posts, they start to concoct various reasons why they
can't be moved from the island including a fake revolution.
