: ' CORNISH HERO 1-11

A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy 'The
Penhales'
Read by Geoffrey Tandy
Ortho Penhale's adventures in Morocco are at an end. His life there was working up for a grand one ; he was successful in the army, happy with his wife, and devoted to their child ; then the plague came and he lost them both overnight. Ortho could not stay in Morocco then, and he made his escape in a British East Indiaman-by way of Bombay.
This instalment finds him back at his own farm, Bosula, in Cornwall, after an absence of seven years, all his family supposing him dead.

Scene : The depths of the forest
Cast in order of appearance
The London Philharmonic Orchestra
Leader, David McCallum
Conductor, Sir Thomas Beecham ,
Bart.
Producer, Charles Moor
Act 2 takes place at the dragon's cave in the wood. Alberich meets Wotan (the Wanderer) who warns him against his treacherous brother
Mime, and also warns Fafner against the hero who will kill him. Wotan leaves the stage and Siegfried and Mime enter. Siegfried lies under a tree and listens to the murmurs of the forest. On the appearance of the dragon he rises and destroys it. Having accidentally tasted its blood, he can now understand the voices of the birds. The Wood-Bird warns him against Mime, and he goes into the cave to get the ring. Alberich and Mime appear discussing the affair, and when Siegfried returns Alberich goes off. Mime tries to beguile the hero with soft words, but in vain ; Siegfried contemptuously kills him.
Finally, the Wood-Bird is heard again, telline Siegfried of the sleeping beauty on the fire-girt rock.
Act 3 of ' Siegfried ' will be broadcast in the National programme at 10.0

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
