How about:
Spoiler: show
SUN rise, REINdeer, WIND organ, SNOW flake?
I know it's not right but at least it makes sense!! :-D
Not a bad effort wonder if Victoria would have given you the points!

Have you looked it up Mick and know the answer from the show?

Little bit of a clue if anyone needs it, try constructing a song from what you see in the pictures

Still no research but I am wondering if it is :
Spoiler: show
a house? The Animals House of the Rising Sun with the classic organ solo?
? :-D

Well I asked SWMBO if she knew any songs with sunrise, deer or stag and organs and in very few seconds she suggested:
Spoiler: show
BFTW
BFTW
So who am I to argue with what appears to be the perfect fit? :-D

another valiant attempt, that is closer on picture number 1, just need a few extra syncategorematic words to what you already have, :-D

and well done indeed to her Mick, a fine debut for her on the Pickled Egg Quiz!

So the 4th Picture would be something like this...

Average standard Dads Army Trivia Quiz anyone :?: I suspect most will do better than my 8/15. I just about embarrassingly failed to trouble the scorers on the Difficult Quiz!

Captain Mainwaring's, "I was wondering who'd be the first to spot that.", apparently had its roots in a Scene from "Whisky Galore" and Captain Paul Waggett played by Basil Radford.

13/15 for me, I only got "During which years was the show 'Dad's Army' originally broadcast?" and "In the second episode of 'Dad's Army', Museum Piece, the platoon tries to requisition some weapons from the Peabody museum. Who tries to stop them?" wrong - but then that might have something to do with having them all on the server here :-D
Only 8/15 for the tough quiz though :(

What common office device could also be used as a percussion instrument, and had music written for it?
