|Caption||Children picket RTÉ (1974)|
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.
