: Z Cars: Cage Until Tame

by Robert Barr.
There are two young constables in each car, ready to deal with trouble as it happens.

Z Cars at 8.0
It happened a long time ago, when Chief Superintendent Robbins was an inspector, and Sergeant Blackitt a constable - but neither man has forgotten Arty Timmins and the trouble he caused before Robbins finally sent him down. Blackie still has a press cutting of the judge's remarks when Timmins was sentenced for acts of violence and intimidation: 'You must be locked away from the public. You have behaved like a wild animal, a vicious animal, and you must be caged until you are considered to be tamed. You will go to prison for ten years.'
Now Timmins is out again. But tamed? Chief Superintendent Robbins does not believe so. And with Charlie Barlow away on a course-Robbins makes it his personal business to keep a close watch on one of the hardest characters ever to cross his path. For there are three citizens of Newtown who, even after ten years, have good cause to be frightened.
Written by Robert Barr, script editor of Z Cars, 'Cage until Tamed' is based - as have been many stories in the series - on true casebook material provided by ex-Detective Sergeant Bill Prendergast of the Liverpool C.I.D. Bernard Bresslaw, the comedian who in recent years has earned an additional reputation as a straight actor, plays the part of Arty Timmins, the tearaway with some old scores to settle.

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

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.
