ON THE RADIO
Chris Wallis, Managing Director and Executive Producer of Watershed Productions is also a radio producer, first with the BBC, then The Watershed Partnership with Jill Waters, and now with Ned Chaillet at Autolycus Productions. Autolycus is a character in The Winters Tale, 'a snapper-up of unconsidered trifles'; in Greek mythology he is the son of Hermes and grandfather of Odysseus; and in The Archers, it's the name of Debbie Aldridge's horse! (Chris was a producer on The Archers in 1994.)
His recent work includes Spread A Little Happiness, a R4 comedy series by John Godber and Jane Thornton starring Suranne Jones, Sue Cookson, Neil Dudgeon, Joanne Froggatt and Ralph Brown; a stage transfer from Liverpool Playhouse of Roger McGough's version of Moliere's Tartuffe for R3; Barbara Pym's Jane And Prudence for R4 Woman's Hour Serial starring Penelope Wilton, Susie Blake, Emma Fielding and Elizabeth Spriggs; the fantastic children's book by Lynne Reid Banks The Indian In The Cupboard for R4 Saturday Play; and A Christmas Carol for R4 Book at Bedtime read by David Jason. He is particularly proud of an innovative 48 episode comedy series he made for BBC 7 Children's called Whoosh!!
