Described by the BBC as a'generation-gap comedy', it centered on the trials and tribulations of Alan Hook and his father Brian. Alan would find himself getting frustrated with the endeavours of his father, whilst the world seemed to be forever against him. Toby Ross-Bryant played Alan's son Vincent, Julia Hills played Alan's wife Beryl, it was written by Andrew Marshall, best known for his popular sitcom 2point4 Children. The title of each episode was a pun on the word'Dad'; the theme tune for the first series was the 1965 hit'Tijuana Taxi' performed by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. For the second series this was replaced with the song'Go Daddy-O' by Californian swing revival band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Due to Julia Hills being in 2point4 Children, still running come the transmission of'Dad', the BBC didn't want her to be in it; however after her audition, any fears and doubts were quashed. Alan Hook - Kevin McNally Brian Hook - George Cole Vincent Hook - Toby Ross-Bryant Beryl Hook - Julia Hills Alan Hook is a highly-strung and unfortunate individual getting frustrated with the endeavours of his father Brian, forever venting his anger at the world around him.
His long-suffering wife Beryl tries her best to keep her husband calm, though this proves difficult due to Brian, without meaning to, is always getting on his son's nerves with his over engineered ideas, old fashioned ways. There is Alan's own son Vincent, a typical moody teenager who Alan seems to be forever embarrassing. See List of'Dad' Episodes for further details. 13 episodes were made. All were written by Andrew Marshall and directed by Nick Wood, with the exception of the final episode, directed by Angela De Chastelai Smith. Wood directed episodes for Marshall's other sitcom 2point4 Children; the show received less critical acclaim than the similar BBC family sitcom 2point4 Children written by Andrew Marshall. During the second series, writer Andrew Marshall was convinced. Kevin McNally believed they'd be doing the show for quite a while; however after 13 episodes, despite going from strength to strength,'Dad' ended with a 1999 Christmas special. McNally commented that the show got'somehow lost', its cancellation was to do with a regime change at the BBC.
George Cole believed the shows cancellation was down to focus groups that began to decide what TV shows should be axed. Both series one and two are available on DVD in Australia. Both DVDs come with special features, one of, an audio commentary from George Cole and Kevin McNally who discuss the show; the estate agent named on the'for sale' signs in the first episode of series 2 are called'Renwick'.

A father is the male parent of a child. Besides the paternal bonds of a father to his children, the father may have a parental and social relationship with the child that carries with it certain rights and obligations. An adoptive father is a male who has become the child's parent through the legal process of adoption. A biological father is the male genetic contributor to the creation of the infant, through sexual intercourse or sperm donation. A biological father may have legal obligations to a child not raised by him, such as an obligation of monetary support. A putative father is a man whose biological relationship to a child is alleged but has not been established. A stepfather is a male, the husband of a child's mother and they may form a family unit, but who does not have the legal rights and responsibilities of a parent in relation to the child; the adjective "paternal" comparatively to "maternal" for a mother. The verb "to father" means to procreate or to sire a child from which derives the noun "fathering".
Biological fathers determine the sex of their child through a sperm cell which either contains an X chromosome, or Y chromosome. Related terms of endearment are dad, pappa and pop. A male role model that children can look up to is sometimes referred to as a father-figure; the paternity rights of a father with regard to his children differ from country to country reflecting the level of involvement and roles expected by that society. Paternity leaveParental leave is when a father takes time off to support his newly born or adopted baby. Paid paternity leave first began in Sweden in 1976, is paid in more than half of European Union countries. In the case of male same-sex couples the law makes no provision for either one or both fathers to take paternity leave. Child custodyFathers' rights movements such as Fathers 4 Justice argue that family courts are biased against fathers. Child supportChild. Paternity fraudAn estimated 2% of British fathers experiences paternity fraud during a non-paternity event, bringing up a child they wrongly believe to be their biological offspring.
In all cultures fathers are regarded as secondary caregivers. This perception is changing with more and more fathers becoming primary caregivers, while mothers go to work or in single parenting situations, male same-sex parenting couples. In the West, the image of the married father as the primary wage-earner is changing; the social context of fatherhood plays an important part in the well-being of men and all their children. In the United States 16% of single parents were men as of 2013. Involved fathers offer developmentally specific provisions to their children and are impacted themselves by doing so. Active father figures may play a role in reducing behavior and psychological problems in young adults. An increased amount of father–child involvement may help increase a child's social stability, educational achievement, their potential to have a solid marriage as an adult, their children may be more curious about the world around them and develop greater problem solving skills. Children who were raised with fathers perceive themselves to be more cognitively and physically competent than their peers without a father.
Mothers raising children together with a father reported less severe disputes with their child. The father-figure is not always a child's biological father and some children will have a biological father as well as a step- or nurturing father; when a child is conceived through sperm donation, the donor will be the "biological father" of the child. Fatherhood as legitimate identity can be dependent on domestic behaviors. For example, a study of the relationship between fathers, their sons, home computers found that the construction of fatherhood and masculinity required that fathers display computer expertise. Roman law defined fatherhood as "Mater semper certa; the recent emergence of accurate scientific testing DNA testing, has resulted in the family law relating to fatherhood experiencing rapid changes. In medieval and most of modern European history, caring for children was predominantly the domain of mothers, whereas fathers in many societies provide for the family as a whole. Since the 1950s, social scientists and feminists have challenged gender roles in Western countries, including that of the male breadwinner.
Policies are targeting fatherhood as a tool of changing gender relations. In early human history there have been notable instances of patricide. For example: Tukulti-Ninurta I, Assyrian king, was killed by his own son after sacking Babylon. Sennacherib, Assyrian king, was killed by two of his sons for his desecration of Babylon. King Kassapa I creator of the Sigiriya citadel of ancient Sri Lanka killed his father king Dhatusena for the throne. Emperor Yang of Sui in Chinese history killed his father, Emperor Wen of Sui. Beatrice Cenci, Italian noblewoman who, according to legend, killed her father after he imprisoned and raped her, she was condemned and beheaded for the crime along with her brother and her stepmother in 1599. Lizzie Borden killed her father and her stepmother with an axe in Fall River, Massachusetts, in 1892, she was acquitted. Iyasus I of Ethiopia, one of the great warrior emperors of Ethiopia, was deposed by his son Tekle Haymanot in 1706 and subsequentl

By comparison, both the fourth-ranked Phu Bai Airport and fifth-ranked Cam Ranh Airport counted around 400,000 total passengers in the same year. In order to cope with increasing traffic, a new passengers terminal opened on December 2011.
Da Nang International Airport has two 10,000-foot paved, parallel runways capable of handling large, modern aircraft such as Boeing 747s, 767s and Airbus 320s. Traffic volume at Da Nang averages 100 to 150 flights every 24 hours. Annual traffic was circa 1.45 million in 2007 and is expected to reach four million by 2020. A new 20,000m² terminal, costing USD $84 million with a capacity of 4 million passengers per year, opened to receive its first domestic flight on 15 December 2011; the feasibility study for the renovation of the airport was sponsored by the United States Trade and Development Agency, was completed by PriceWaterhouseCoopers in 2006.
