James and Tony bring you Episode 13 of the Dads Army Podcast. Firstly, congratulations to Bill Pertwee MBE who attended his investiture at Buckingham Palace a few weeks ago. There are many articles on the web covering the story, just search for 'Bill Pertwee MBE' using any search engine. We also bring you an interview with Stuart Wright, the Thetford Town Councillor behind the plans to erect a statue of Arthur Lowe in the town. He also talks about the new Dad’s Army exhibition that opened in Thetford two weeks ago. The link to the plan is available at http://new.edp24.co.uk/ and then seach for 'Stuart Wright' or 'Its my statue'. The article is dated 30/11/07. The Northern Echo Jimmy Perry interview is available at http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/audiovideo/entertainment/ If that wasn’t enough, we also announce the 17 cities and theatres the Dad’s Army Stage Play is visiting in 2008 - your chance to find out if the play is coming to theatre near you. Lastly, we discuss the classic Christmas Special Episode, My Brother and I. We will be back with a mini-podcast early next year, and then back at the end of January with Episode 14.
