Vignettes from Clunbmy Village
'Clunton and Clunbury, Clungunford and Clun
Are the quietest places under the sun'
CLUNBURY is a secluded village in Shropshire, between Craven Arms and Clun, with Clun Forest, which is traversed by an ancient British trackway, as its background to the west. Mrs. Gandy, the doctor's wife, has helped to arrange a feature representative of the life of the village. She is the author of several plays, including ' Storm in Shropshire', a drama of Clun in flood-time, which was broadcast last year The vignettes of village life centre round the cchoolmaster, Mr. J. Cooper , who is a keen fisherman, and to him members of the community relate their experiences.
Those taking part include
Mr. Harry Meredith , gardener, choirmaster, and captain of the bellringers ; Miss Hilda Gittoes , a Shropshire shepherd's daughter; Mr. Tom Randall , a farm worker; Mr. John Davis , a small-holder; Mr. Tom Lewis , the village builder ; and two schoolchildren, Ivor Meredith and Olive Goodman. There will be stories of fishing and poaching, cider-making and the whinberry harvest ; and some notable floods will be recalled. Clunbury has a Norman church with a Saxon font and a good peal of bells. The schoolmaster has a collection of flint arrowheads found in the district.

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.
