Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, Ian Lavender, and Bill Pertwee star in the radio sequel sitcom to Dad's Army.
'The Pilot': In this rare pilot, war is over and former Home Guard Captain Mainwaring plans to renovate Frambourne-on-Sea's pier. However, to get a loan, he approaches local bank manager Arthur Wilson.
'The Business Proposition': In the first episode of the series (and after the sad death of Arthur Lowe), Bert Hodges, former ARP warden, is looking for a partner to renovate the pier. Maybe he can get Frank Pike to talk to his 'uncle' Arthur....
'The Bank Loan': How can Hodges and Pike persuade Wilson to loan them the money?
'Who Owned the Pier?': Pike and Hodges research the history of Frambourne Pier, and a visit by the electrician brings worrying news.
With Arthur Lowe as George Mainwaring, John Le Mesurier as Arthur Wilson, Ian Lavender as Frank Pike, and Bill Pertwee as Bert Hodges, 'It Sticks Out Half a Mile' was written by Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles, who also adapted Dad's Army for radio.

Being a massive dads Army fan I was really excited when I discovered this radio recording and I wasn’t disappointed when I bought it. Pilot episode with Lowe and Le Mesurier is a wonderful last chance to hear these two fantastic actors bring to life their altered egos, Mainwaring and Wilson. Whilst the other episodes certainly miss Mainwaring (after the death of Arthur Lowe) they are never the less very enjoyable, with the return of Hodges and Pike.
