Will a visit to the pier pour cold water on the renovation plans? Dad's Army spin-off with John Le Mesurier. From November 1983.

1948: Will a visit to the pier in Frambourne-on-Sea pour cold water on the renovation plans?

A seaside saga of pier perpetuation starring John Le Mesurier, Ian Lavender and Bill Pertwee.

Arthur Wilson ...... John Le Mesurier
Frank Pike ...... Ian Lavender
Bert Hodges ...... Bill Pertwee
Miss Perkins ...... Vivienne Martin
Guthrie ...... Glynn Edwards
Mr Johnson ...... Michael Bilton

After a pilot episode was made in 1981, Arthur Lowe sadly died. So this 13-part series was revamped to feature the Dad's Army characters played by Pertwee and Lavender instead. The series was later adapted for ITV by Yorkshire TV.

Written by Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles, based on the characters originally created by Jimmy Perry and David Croft.

Producer: Martin Fisher

First broadcast on BBC Radio 2 in November 1983.
