Walk Softly, Peter Troy (SA)


Walk Softly, Peter Troy Detective Drama Aired on Springbok Radio from 10 December 1963 to 21 February 1964. This series was produced in the Durban Studios of Herrick Merril Productions. It starred Tom Meehan, John Simpson, and Merle Wayne. It was sponsored by Irving & Johnson, who also sponsored the "Gunsmoke" series which "Walk Softly, Peter Troy" replaced. A sequel to this series was heard on the English Radio Service from 19 May 1964 to 28 November 1964. The sponsors, Irving & Johnson, reportedly disliked the series, which is why it was discontinued on Springbok Radio and moved to the English Service. This was the first series on the English Service that came from an independent production house, not produced by the SABC. There was an Australian version of this radio series produced prior to the South African productions. Let me repeat that last sentence for those who did not read it the first time…There was an Australian version of this radio series produced prior to the South African productions. Several recordings of the Australian productions have survived, and they are routinely sold and traded within the OTR community, mislabeled as South African productions. (From Pumamouse)

Gregory Keen is an agent with MI-5. With the imposing name of Gregory George Athelston Keen is a serious, determined former Major in the British Army, now an experienced agent in Special Service of Home Security, or MI-5 as it is more commonly known. Little of his background is mentioned although in passing it is obvious that he had served in Military Intelligence during WWII. He is single with a good eye for the ladies but not one to let a pretty leg sway him from his task. Based on his activities, Keen is a very good detective in addition to being a trained agent. His methodical process of studying the evidence and coming to the correct conclusion is demonstrated clearly. Backing him up on his missions is the junior but still dependable Agent Coutts with whom Keen has a good relationship. The Australian radio serial entitled The Adventures of Major Gregory Keen of M.I.5 that ran from 1951 to 1957. Each program ran a short 12 minutes long but there were an impressive 104 episodes in each adventure, making the entire case last 20 hours.
