' Tanglemane '
A new serial play written for broadcasting by Tudur Watkins
2—'No Laughing Matter '
Production by Lorraine Davies
At an auction of pit ponies at Garth Farm young Davey Vaughan , on the spur of the moment, with only five shillings in his pocket, bids ten pounds and five shillings for a high-spirited black pony. Old Sam Cobble , the village shoemaker, backs him up against Simon Stark , a hard man who had hoped to get the animal for ten pounds.
That night Sam and Davey wonder how on earth to break the news to Mrs. Vaughan, Davey's widowed mother, who has as much as she can do to make ends meet. And though Davey vows to earn every penny himself to pay for Tanglemane, Mrs. Vaughan refuses to allow the pony into the back garden. When they are in the middle of a bitter argument, however, Simon Stark calls to see them.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
