In this special BONUS episode, Eggs is joined by Will Bates: TV and film composer, son of Ralph, and child star of Dear John (in which he played John Lacey's young son Toby).

As well as discussing what it was like to act alongside his Dad and his work as a composer of original score for film and television.

Will also tells us a little about the Ralph Bates Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund charity founded by his mum Virginia Wetherall, which helps fund research into the causes and cures for pancreatic cancer.

You can find out more about the Ralph Bates PCR Fund by visiting where you can also make a donation to help this worthwhile charity and honour the memory of a fabulous actor and good man, who gave us some wonderful performances in Dear John and many other roles on stage and screen.
