It is a strange coincidence that we have been discussing this author recently on the forum.

News has reached me that Roger Wingfield passed away yesterday (31st July 2007).

I know some plans are a foot from fellow enthusiasts to see if they can persuade the BBC to offer a fitting radio tribute.

I will keep this board updated as news emerges.

I am surprised that RD Wingfield only ever had three plays produced on SNT.

I remember he was very good writing about pompous officials. He also wrote some good crime stories other than Frost.

You are right, it is surprising Rodney Wingfield only had 3 SNTís to his name, as he was certainly a prolific writer.

He was also personally keen on radio as a drama medium and was a member of at least one collectors circle, right up to his recent death.

Even though there were only 3 SNTís one has become highly sought after by collectors ďDouble EntryĒ. I can only assume Rodney didnít have a copy of this himself. If he did, he didnít share it with anybody.
