HUNTINGDON Community Radio (HCR) is preparing for a summer launch and when it starts broadcasting, one of the first things you will hear is the new radio soap called Huntsford. Set in a hairdressers called the Wavelength Hair Salon, the show will be on air for five minutes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with a 15-minute omnibus on Sunday afternoons. Will the drama bring Huntingdonshire to a halt? Will there be cliffhangers like there are in The Archers, the longest running radio soap in the world? Only time will tell, but we can tell you that at the end of episode one a child seems to have fallen into the river. Yes, it's a tense moment, especially as you have to wait two days to find out if little Harry is going to sink or swim. Harry, 14, who is played by 15-year-old Euan West from Eaton Socon, is the son of the salon owner, Sandra (Moira Healy) who is divorced but very likely to start a new romance with hunky Rick (Kim Loader) who calls in for a haircut just as someone runs into the shop to break the news that Harry is in the river. Gorgeous Rick ends up forsaking his coiffeur to rush Sandra to the river in his car. The humour in the series, director Scott Andrews says, is carried by the Sandra's salon staff - Tanya (Madeleine Harris) the 17-year-old scatterbrain trainee hairdresser, and deputy salon manager Alvin who is played by the head boy at Hinchinbgrooke School, Adam Gotch, 16. Tanya (who has an appalling telephone manner) keeps dropping things and breaking things and Alvin (ever so slightly camp) is lost when it comes to anything practical. The oldest of the actors is Pamela Holley, 78, from Hartford, who plays Maggie the owner of Huntsford's quaint old sweet shop. The actors came forward to audition after an appeal in The Hunts Post.
