: 'CORNISH HERO' -14

A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy The
Penhales '
Read by Geoffrey Tandy
Ortho Penhale's secret marriage to Nicola Barradale failed immediately, because before he had time to announce it and bring her to Bosula, she lost her reason from the shock of hearing of her father's suicide. He was a British merchant of substance who did not insure his ships and suddenly found himself penniless through the last of them being lost in close succession.
Ortho was in two minds whether to announce the marriage after all, or not ; he decides to do so and takes home Nicola, who has now the mind of a small child. This instalment shows him trying to work out a new way of life on this basis.

Mary Ross MacDougall (soprano)

Arnold Goldsbrough (organ)
Italian Duet, No. 14
Si tu non lasci amore, mio cor (If thou wilt not abandon love, 0 my heart). Quando non ho piu core (When my heart is no longer mine)
Two Fugues for Organ
1 in G. 2 in A minor
Italian Duet, No. 19
Fronda leggiero e mobile (Light and waving branches). Saggio quel cor (The Prudent Heart)
Handel's twenty-four vocal duets, which were written for performance in the home, were mostly composed during his visits to Italy during the period 1704-1711. Later, however, he wrote a few, such as four in 1741 and one (in G minor) in 1745, as sketches for extended vocal and choral works. The style of these duets is very pure and lyrical and has little or nothing in common with the showy operatic conventions of the day. One of the duets to be broadcast this evening, in E flat, was later incorporated in Messiah (' 0 death, where is thy sting ? ') and the other, in D, was incorporated in Belshazzar.

: I KNEW A MAN

' Benjamin Jowett '
F. S. Boas
Dr. Benjamin Jowett justly earned for himself the reputation of Oxford's greatest Don. Wit, snob, disciplinarian, and scholar, he devoted his life to Oxford and proved himself worthy in excelsis of that University's classical tradition. Frederick Boas , one of England's leading English scholars, Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a Vice-President of the English Association, was an undergraduate of Balliol during Jowett's reign there, and will bring vou tonight his personal reminiscences of this great Oxford character.

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.
