Waggoners' Walk was a drama series that was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 in 15-minute episodes, broadcast on weekday afternoons and repeated the following morning, and ran from April 1969 until 1980. It was set in an estate in Hampstead with most storylines involving the various tenants of No 1 Waggoners' Walk, a large town house divided into several flats. Characters featured in the series included the Vaughan family (original owners of No 1), newspaper editor Mike Nash and his wife, Claire, and Lynn and Matt Prior, who ran a restaurant. The programme ceased broadcasting in 1980. When the BBC, as part of cut-backs, axed the series, they rejected a request from Capital Radio to take over the series. Actors who acted in the series included the Australian actor Barry Creyton. The series was created by Jill Hyem and Alan Downer and written by (amongst others) Peter Ling.[1]
