: Cornish Hero ”13

A serial version for broadcasting of Crosby Garstin 's trilogy 'The Penhales'
Read by Geoffrey Tandy
Ortho Penhale was not slow in following up his services to the woman he rescued in the coach on the Penzance road. He made several visits to Penzance, and discovered that his 'China Shepherdess' (as he called her) was the daughter of a wealthy shipowner in Bristol by the name of Barradale. Already he has met her twice, and in this instalment the romance goes much further.

: 'THE PILGRIM FLAME'

St. Patrick
St. Columba St. Aidan The coming of the Christian faith to
Ireland, Scotland, and the North in three dramatic interludes by D. G. Bridson
Produced in Belfast, Glasgow, and Newcastle by James Mageean , Gordon Gildard , and Cecil McGivern -Directed from Manchester by D. G. Bridson
There are few more stirring or romantic episodes in the history of Britain than the coming of Christianity to these islands, and the figures of the three saints who brought it stand as monuments of patience, perseverance, and endurance.
In the three dramatic interludes of this big programme you will hear first about the life of Saint Patrick in Ireland, secondly about how Saint Columba crossed to the little island of Iona and settled there with his followers, and, thirdly, how Saint Aidan set out from Iona, came to Northumbria, and began from there to Christianise England. These episodes will be rather on the lines of Laurence Housman 's
' Little Plays of St. Francis '. All three interludes will be linked by descriptive and evocative narration.

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.
