Hello and welcome to Episode 52 of the Dad’s Army podcast. This time out we begin to go through the bulging mailbag that's full of the feedback you've all been sending in. Yes, you’ve been busy at the keyboard again and Oliver and I had a fantastic time reading your comments, your opinions and observations about all things Dad’s Army. For the first time, we've had to hold over a few emails as we've just been overwhelmed with the volume of feedback - but don't worry if you don't hear your message read out this time, we will get to it in a future show.
We’ll be back in a few weeks time with a commentary episode of My British Buddy. Thanks for listening and enjoy the show.Episode 51 - Dad's Army Weekend 2010 special

Welcome to a very special episode of the Dad’s Army podcast. This episode James and Oliver bring you coverage of the 2010 Dad’s Army weekend held back in June this year. We listen in on the unveiling of the Captain Mainwaring statue and hear from both David Croft and Bill Pertwee at the ceremony.
But that’s not all! At the Dad’s Army appreciation society member’s meal, I had the honour of interviewing Jimmy Perry, Harold Snoad and Michael Knowles – live on stage in front of over 200 people! I also spoke to Frank Williams and Pamela Cundell at the event who were both as charming as ever.

James and Oliver are back with a commentary to the series 3 episode, War Dance. Enjoy this commentary – I don't think we've ever made so many mistakes during a recording! Well, all these commentaries are recorded ‘as live’ with no editing and quite honestly, under the influence of a bottle of rather nice white wine...
Episode 51 will be out late August and will feature coverage of this year’s Dad’s Army weekend held in June – and what a weekend that was! I was able to record interviews with Jimmy Perry, Michael Knowles and Harold Snoad along with a few others. It was great to meet so many listeners over the weekend too – thank you all for being so friendly and complimentary about the podcast.
We will also announce the winner of the competition on the next show, so keep your ears tuned if you entered!
Thanks also to everyone who has sent in feedback – once again we’ve had a load and Oliver and I look forward to going through it all in detail in a future podcast very soon.Episode 49

Sit back and enjoy speeches from Frank Williams, Pamela Cundell, Bill Pertwee, Harold Snoad, Jimmy Perry, Su Pollard, Ruth Madoc, Vicki Michelle and Paul Shane.
The sound quality in this podcast is varied and some speeches are clearer than others – but I didn’t want to cut anything!
We’ll be back towards the end of May with Episode 48, and will bring you a preview of the Dad’s Army weekend at Thetford being held in June this year. All good stuff!

Hello and welcome to a rather special edition of the Dad’s Army podcast. Special for two reasons – one, we have an absolute first here; we have a member of the cast join Oliver and I for a commentary podcast - yes, Mr Frank Williams, better known as the Vicar of Walmington on Sea, joins us in commentating on the classic series six episode, The Royal Train. This episode is one of Frank’s favourites and hearing his memories about making the programme is a joy to behold.
As I said, this episode is special for two reasons – the second is that this is your opportunity to bag yourself the whole set of Dad’s Army DVDs by entering our new competition. Yes, series one to nine and the three Christmas specials are up for grabs by simply identifying eleven clips from the series. Could it be simpler?! Take a listen and find out!Episode 45

Hello and welcome to podcast 45! Firstly, the podcast is a little later than usual this month so apologies for that – but hopefully the content makes up for it!
This month Oliver and I go through the latest Dad’s Army news, and once again empty the bulging podcast mailbag. Thanks once again to everyone who has sent in feedback – you’ve raised some great points and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting back, eating a toasted cheese supper and sipping some rather fine black-market port whilst reading your emails!
We also welcome Tony Gallichan to the show who joins me to discuss the very first episode of Dad’s Army, The Man and the Hour. You can hear Tony over at the Flashing Blade podcast talk about all things Doctor Who at www.flashingblade.org.uk
Next month we have a rather special episode for you. Keep your eyes peeled for a commentary episode with a member of the cast in mid-April!
Thanks again for listening and please keep your feedback coming in – email@example.com.

Hello and welcome to Episode 44 of the Dad’s Army podcast. This month Oliver and I discuss the recent Dad’s Army board game/e-bay story, read a review from one of our listeners on Nicolas Ridley’s new book about his father - Godfey’s Ghost, and to a triumphant fanfare, announce the winner of the signed copy of that very book. All that, and a commentary on the superb series six episode, The Honourable Man. What more could you possibly ask for?!
In March’s podcast, we’ll be reviewing the very first episode of Dad’s Army, The Man and the Hour, so please send in your thoughts and comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll read them out and discuss them during our review.
As usual, you can follow the podcast on twitter – www.twitter.com/dadsarmypodcast and keep an eye on the blog – yes, despite me neglecting it far too much! That’s over at www.dadsarmypodcast.blogspot.com.
