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.

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
