It Sticks Out Half A Mile

It Sticks Out Half A Mile | Old Time and Current Radio Shows | Scoop.it
Dailymotion France - Playlist It Sticks Out Half A Mile, Still 1948, the new version involves Bert Hodges (Bill Pertwee), former ARP warden and nemesis of Mainwaring's Home Guard unit, approaching former Home Guard Private Frank Pike (Ian Lavender), now 22 years old, with a proposal to renovate the near derelict pier, costing £5,000, at Frambourne. In order to finance this plan Pike has to approach bank manager Wilson (Le Mesurier), who just happens to be his "uncle" (publicly a friend of his mother's, but strongly hinted to the audience to be Pike's father), for a loan. Wilson is blackmailed by Pike (who is no longer the young innocent of Dad's Army) over past indiscretions with a woman named Smith and Wilson suspects the only reason Hodges approached Pike was to get to the bank's money through him. Nevertheless, Pike and Wilson put aside their wartime quarrel with Hodges - more or less - and the renovation begins.

Our Miss Brooks Radio Show - Entertainment Radio | Old Time and Current Radio Shows | Scoop.it
Classic radio shows,otr,crime,mystery,action,adventure,horror,westerns,radio shows,
Richard Crowder's insight:

Our Miss Brooks was a hit on radio from the outset; within eight months of its launch as a regular series, the show landed several honors, including four for Eve Arden, who won polls in four individual publications of the time. Arden had actually been the third choice to play the title role. Harry Ackerman, at the time CBS’s West Coast director of programming, wanted Shirley Booth for the part, but as he told historian Gerald Nachman many years later, he realized Booth was too focused on the underpaid downside of public school teaching at the time to have fun with the role.
