Pony clubs exist all over Great Britain to encourage young people in the art of horsemanship. Television cameras visit the Taunton Vale Pony Club, in camp at Cheddon Fitzpaine, Somerset, to see how its members-all under twenty-one-put this idea into practice.

A comedy by E. Eynon Evans.
[Starring] Hugh Burden
(Second performance: Thursday at 9.25 p.m.)
This is a Welsh comedy, set in the Pantglas Old Age Pensioners' Club. Here the old people quietly pass their days, indulging each other's foibles (like old Miss Phelps's obsession with her nephew and niece) and passing the time with such mild and irreproachable activities as choir practice and chess. They seem satisfied enough -all, that is, save one. For Mr. Townsend is undeniably difficult; he was formerly the owner-manager of a big shop, and the habit of work and authority dies hard. He has become a little eccentric. When everybody else at the choral concert was singing 'The Passing Day', he insisted on singing 'Bright is the Morning', just because it was printed in the programme. When finally tackled by his friends, 'Towny' tries to explain that the cause of his discontent is the enforced inactivity, the assumption that because he is old he must want to retire from the world and commercial life. Why, he asks, should we not still do something-sell something? What about that half-finished chair of Josh's, for example? And so, under his inspiration, the old people of Pantglas decide to come out of retirement. (P.F.)
