: ' CORNISH HERO '-12

A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy ' The Penhales ', read by Geoffrey Tandy
Ortho Penhale's adventures abroad are at an end for a time, and he is back in his native Cornwall, broke but, as usual, boasting;
He landed at Portsmouth and started walking home looking out for a chance of getting a lift. The last free ride he got was by throwing a sleepy post-boy off a lady's carriage into a ditch and driving it himself at full gallop into Penzance.
In Penzance Ortho heard of his mother's death and he left hastily for Bosula.

: A VIOLA RECITAL

by Watson Forbes
Watson Forbes was born at St.
Andrews, Scotland, in 1909. His father gave him his first lessons when he was only five years old. In 1926 he entered the Royal Academy of Music, leaving in 1932 after winning numerous medals and special prizes and being elected an Associate-A.R.A.M. He then gained the Sir James Caird music scholarship for Scotland, and studied under Professor Sevcik, Albert Sammons, and later, Lionel Tertis.
He joined the Stratton String
Quartet in 1933 and the Reginald Paul Piano Quartet in 1934, and as a member of these two organisations has performed in nearly every important city, school, and music club in the British Isles.
On Tuesday, June 27, listeners will hear Watson Forbes and Myers Foggin in a programme of sonatas that includes Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata, which Forbes has arranged from the original manuscript.

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.
