Wilfred Pickles

ONE of the most aimable and successful interviewers of radio and TV is Wilfred Pickles. Do audiences now prefer him as an actor? As each new appearance in a straight part shows Wilfred to be an accomplished performer, people wonder, and Wilfred too must wonder, what he has been missing all these years. Perhaps he could not have given the performance he did in Derrick Boothroyd's "Value for Money" (BBC. "The Sunday-Night Play") had it not been for years as an interviewer.

"Value for Money" was a honey of a play — all that a play should he for television, or any other medium. Wilfred Pickles played the archetypal Scrooge. but human and lovable, with Barfield, his hometown near Leeds, as a microcosm of the world of men living in fear of bankruptcy with £50,000 in the bank. More stories, like this, from Boothroyd and for Pickles.
