Tom Hill has been a Reporter and Producer on the BBC, ITN and SKY, he says, " From the opening bars of the theme tune to the goodnight ritual that closed every episode, the lives of the large family of dungaree-clad folks eeking out a living on Waltons' Mountain were a weekly ritual in our home in the 1970's. When my sister and i visited Canada in our early teens one of the highlights was being able to watch the show every night"

IRENE PORTER:- Irene ran the Waltons Friendship society for a long time, here is what she has to say.

 

Hello fellow walton admirers, well done for finding this exciting new site which will hopefully fulfill Martin's ambition of bringing some Walton cast members together with Uk followers in England. I wish the cast and Martin good luck with this venture and truly hope it will happen. I have had a wonderful 20 years running WFS and have visited Earls home town of Schuyler and Charlotessville many times as well as California and the studios.

 

I have lost count of the number of Waltons International Fan Club reunions and Waltons museum reunions i attended, or best of all, just how many extra special Walton events put together by Ray Castro. WFS also had a television appearance on Channel Four for the 25th UK anniversary and three theatre trips to see Richard Thomas on stage in the West End. Hard to pick an outright personal best but currently i would say being stage door guard for Ray Castro's 40th anniversary reunion in aid of Kami Cotler ( Elizabeth ) school. Meeting and greeting so many of the supporting guest actors was wonderful.

 

The actual show was brilliant and brimming over with actors, writers etc. This was only last September but already members of the extended Walton family have passed away. This is the sad part the ever lengthening list of deceased people who either made the series or loved it. 

 

So folks if you would like to see a UK cast reunion try and think of a way to get sponsorship for it. WFS originally fulfilled its ambitions of gathering all the Walton info together ( no internet back then with everything at your finger tip ) and having the series repeated, three 1980's end movies screened here in the UK. So it can happen, go for it. The Waltons will endure through all of time because it is perfectly crafted. Goodnight all.
