Les And Robert

Radio 4
1993 (four episodes)

This late-night oddity, running to just a single, short, never-repeated series, was written by Robin Driscoll and Tony Haase who also played the eponymous heroes.  From their starting-point in Lancing, would-be wanderers Les and Robert attempted to reach India by means of the AA Relay service, but became stranded in the ancient and decidedly mysterious village of Crippleoak, where sinister goings-on were most definitely going on.  The series also featured Week Endingís Sally Grace, plus Hilda Braid (notable for her incomparable portrayal of the half-mad mother in BBC1ís Citizen Smith in the late seventies).
