' 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 '.
