A Welsh Wayside Comedy in One Act.
Specially written for the Microphone by JOHN OSWALD FRANCIS.
Mind Picture. -Imagine that you are looking at a country road running from left to right before your line of vision. In the background trees in full summer foliage divide the road from a moor. It is eleven o'clock on a bright moonlight night.
Close to a roadside fire there are two old boxes. On one of these sits Twm Tinker , a vagrant poacher of perhaps forty-five. On the ground at his feet is a frying pan containing steak and onions. As he finishes his supper he soliloquizes and almost immediately Dicky Bach Dwi , another poacher, is heard singing not far away.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
