: Welsh Music and Comedy: The Poacher

A Comedy in One Act by J. O. Francis
Played by the Trecynon Amateur Dramatic Society
Scene: The living-room of a cottage on a Welsh countryside.

Twmas Shon, the poacher, has been converted, and is now tasting the fruits of a pious life. With the goal before him, at some distant date, of a place on the Rural District Council, he was proof against the blandishments of his former accomplice, Dicky Bach Dwl, the half-witted lad who worshipped the man who had been stolen from him.
One thing, however, was a sore temptation to Twmas Shon, and caused him to baulk even at the immediate prospects of taking high office with the Band of Hope. It was not the saving of butchers' bills by means of a few trapped rabbits, nor the thought of the dark river, the torch, and the raised spear awaiting the appearing salmon. It was the instinct of sport within him kindling him to the hunt of the wily rabbit, 'Old Soldier'. who had eluded capture week after week by every lag in the village.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
