Thank you.

Which sit com, which was only made for the radio (and was first broadcast on Radio 4 in about 1983) is considered to be the sequel to "Dad's Army"?

That is correct. In the pilot episode, Mainwaring went to the bank to ask for a loan so that he could buy a pier and found that Wilson was the manager. I understand that, sadly, before a series was made, Arthur Lowe died and the intended series was shelved. However, his widow wanted it to be made and Pike and Hodges became the buyers of the pier. It has recently been repeated on Radio 4 Extra and, I recall that, they and Wilson were the only "Dad's Army" characters in it.

Over to Daniel.
