David Croft dies age 89.
THE man who co-wrote the classic comedies 'Allo 'Allo and Dad's Army has died at the age of 89.
David Croft, who jointly produced some of the most famous sitcoms in BBC history including Hi-de-Hi! and Are You Being Served?, died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Portugal. His family called him a "truly great man" in a statement released today. Perhaps his biggest hit from a glittering legacy of shows was Dad's Army. It was the first of his many programmes to appear on television in 1968 and was inspired by his own time serving in World War II when he was a major in North Africa, India and Singapore. Later he co-wrote It Ain't Half Hot Mum with life-long writing partner Jimmy Perry. The pair went on to write holiday camp smash Hi-de-Hi! His other works, including Are You Being Served? and 'Allo 'Allo, were ratings winners for the BBC. His last show was Oh Doctor Beeching for the BBC in 1993 before he retired. He was awarded an OBE in 1978 for services to television.
