A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy
' The Penhales '
Read by Geoffrey Tandy
Ortho Penhale, a young Cornish squire, was captured by Moorish pirates in the English Channel and sold as a slave in Morocco.
With his gift for ready imitation and the training in horsemanship he had received from the gypsies, he quickly won promotion in the Sultan's army, and this instalment finds him as a captain in the guards. But he meets his match in a woman from the hill country.

Percival Mackey 's Orchestra and the BBC Revue Chorus conducted by Charles Shadwell
After his last show Ralph Reader's postbag was heavy with letters coming from Cornwall and the North of Scotland and dozens of places in between. These shows were put on for their comic value-at least that was one of the reasons-and the Right Away revues have lived up to this in a remarkable way. All the letters answer the question : ' Why are these human, not-too-sophisticated programmes a success ? ' It is obviously because there is nothing quite like them on the air. Ralph's public lies largely among the young people, and he has had them in mind when writing this series. In tonight's Right Au-ay is one rousing new number which Ralph composed specially for those who are keen on flying. It is called ' Wings over the Homeland '.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
