Arthur Smith: SYD


The story of an ordinary man who lived through extraordinary times, told with love, laughter and song.

Syd Smith fought at El Alamein, became a POW and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany. In the 1950s, PC Syd 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, music, reflections and a hilarious photo.

By Arthur Smith with live music from Kirsty Newton. Directed by Kevin Day.
