The twenty-first of the series of West Country programmes of simple humour and sophisticated dance, including four West Country dialect sketches
' Further Doings of Old Gaffer' by F. Marriott Watson
1 Mathematics
2 Managing a Bank
3 Pawnbroking
4 Sairey's Noo Coat produced by Cyril Wood
The scene of all the sketches is in the bar parlour of The Pheasant Inn at Molgrave
Gavottes of various periods and composers will be played at the beginning and at the end of the programme, and in the intervals between the sketches
In this instalment of the ' Gaffer and Gavotte ' series Gaffer will not have things quite so much his own way. Sairey, his wife, has from time to time tried to assert herself, but she has always been slightly in the background, and Gaffer has usually won in the end. This time, however, Sairey-interpreted as usual by Phyllis Smale-will emerge from her comparative obscurity.


Produced By: Cyril Wood
Unknown: Phyllis Smale-Will

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
