As well as a television series spanning eighty episodes, Dad's Army was also a successful radio series; there were 67 radio episodes which were broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Dates shown are the episode's original air-dates. Since 2007, the full run of radio episodes has been regularly repeated on digital archive station BBC Radio 7, along with its radio-only spin-off It Sticks Out Half a Mile.

Although many of the television episodes were adapted to radio, the following were not: Gorilla Warfare, Ring Dem Bells, When You've Got to Go, Come in, Your Time is Up, The Face on the Poster, My Brother and I, The Love of Three Oranges, Wake Up Walmington, The Making of Private Pike, Knights of Madness, The Miser's Hoard, Number Engaged & Never Too Old.

The last episode of the radio series (Ten Seconds From Now) was based on the 1972 Christmas Night with the Stars insert Broadcast to the Empire. Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier and Clive Dunn were the only cast members to appear in all 67 episodes of the radio series and despite James Beck still being alive for the recording of the adaptation of Battle School, his last work on the radio series was on the audio episode of A Stripe for Frazer.
