Description   Children picket the Nutley Lane entrance to RTÉ, in protest at the proposed axing of the RTÉ Television children's show 'Wanderly Wagon' in December 1974. The series was not cancelled; this still was published in an RTÉ Guide article previewing its return on 31 January 1975.

From left to right; Robert Frawley, his brother Alan Frawley, David Keegan and Louise Keegan (cousins of the Frawleys). The man standing at the back is Frank Madden (deceased) who organised the protest via a letter to the press. The remaining four children are unidentified, but were members of the same family.

'Wanderly Wagon' ran on RTÉ from 1967 to 1982.
