  • following Waydale Farm at Little Brington, Northampton, and the farmer Evan Davies

  • re-edited as 18 episodes, shown during 1960-61
  • also broadcast late in the evening for adults by Associated-Rediffusion: the summer 1958 programmes were broadcast on Mondays at 11pm three weeks after each schools transmission, and then all 18 of the re-edited episodes were broadcast after 11pm on Thursdays from April to August 1962
