The "Radio Times" claimed that an upcoming TV series (Jericho) has been described as "Britain's first Western". Everyone seems to have forgotten this series, which portrayed the adventures of a group of Welsh cattle drovers in the early 19th century. Before cattle began to be transported by rail, they had to be driven across country from the farmlands to livestock markets such as London's Smithfield.
The series was shown during the summer, but I'm surprised that it has attracted so little attention on this site. I don't remember many details of the plot but I know it was a dramatic and exciting story. The experienced Welsh actor Robert Pugh was one of the leads.
