Storyline

This show is about a couple broken and cheated Welsh families that decide in order to live they need to drive their cattle beasts to London for the best price. Unfortunately, there's the evil landholder that wants to kick everyone out of the valley and see the good families starve and go to workhouses. His conniving treachery enables several issues to arise while the fellas and a few more travellers in their party attempt to persevere. Talk about cattle plague and cholera outbreaks, punishment for driving cattle on a Sunday, and other interesting issues are just a fraction of what six episodes will bring you. Adventure, horses, and a young Ray Stevens without a shirt on.

British Western
28 December 2015 | by k.m.buntingSee all my reviews

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.
