Wilderness Road

1 9 8 6 (UK)
6 x 30 minute episodes

This short-lived and best-forgotten BBC comedy followed Cage (David Sibley) and Moon (Robin Driscoll) – two unemployed losers who shared a seedy flat and spent much of their time in The Sun, a run-down pub run by Arch (Leslie Sands).

They also spent a great deal of time trying to avoid the attention of local villains Alan (Peter Jonfield) and Keith (Gary Olsen), two heavies working for a mysterious and dodgy individual who was intent on taking over all the businesses in Wilderness Road, including The Sun.

Episodes charted the lads’ attempt to make something of themselves. Although often divided in thought, they were united in adversity.

Veronica Quilligan played their friend, Nancy.
