The Paper Round Episode 4 of 5
Listen in pop-out player

A series in which five public figures revisit the route of their paper round to reveal how it influenced their attitudes to work, creativity and independence.

Having a paper round is a rite of passage for many children, and many successful public figures claim to have braved the early mornings and the elements to deliver newspapers. For some, it's a chance for independence and freedom, or a temporary escape from the horrors at home. For others, it provides the money to spend on music, fashion and girl/boyfriends.

Gavin and Stacey star Melanie Walters joins Bob Kingdom as she retraces her paper round route in Swansea.

Producer: Olivia Landsberg
A Ladbroke Production for BBC Radio 4.
