: John Madin

at the Organ of the Granada, Welling
Although only twenty-six, John Madin has had ten years of cinema experience, beginning as an orchestral accompanist in the days of silent films.
At the age of fifteen he became organist at Newbold Church, near Chesterfield, and was a pupil of the Birmingham city organist, G. D. Cunningham. Madin received his first cinema-organ appointment at a Sheffield cinema where he succeeded Reginald Dixon. He was later 'sent to Coventry', where he stayed for five years, giving his first broadcast from there in 1934. He came to the Gaumont, Hammersmith, in 1936, and a year later gave his first broadcast on the BBC Theatre Organ. He is at present touring round London for the Pernstein Theatres.

: 'CORNISH HERO 1-16

A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy ' The Penhales '
Read by Geoffrey Tandy
Ortho Penhale's turn of luck when he inherited the Charmante Helene lasted ten years, and he made another name for himself-this time among the ' Blackbirders trading slaves between the Guinea Coast and the West Indies. But the end (as with all his adventures) made no mistake in its coming, and he finished up alone on St. Lucia, having lost his ship and his black cargo all at once, and was taken prisoner by the French.
But now he is back in England once more, and, war having broken out again, he gets another ship.

The programme devised by Sonny Miller and produced by Max Kester
Last October this jolly programme, with its atmosphere of camaraderie and good humour, made its appearance on the air and scored a striking success. Tonight marks the first of six new broadcasts, to be given every fortnight as before, each presenting a different incident in the arduous, if not unhappy life of our Legionnaires.
With two exceptions the cast will be the same. Fred Yule is to play Le Capitaine Dubois (its creator, Lance Fairfax, being otherwise engaged doing a season at Blackpool). The other new recruit is Jack Warner in the part of a new character in the series, Albert Hawkins , round whom this first programme is centred. Warner, who is so good in lively Cockney parts, should add to the fun of it all, while Yule's fine baritone voice (he will sing in Frertch that always popular ' Le Reve Passe') will be a further asset. Both will be broadcasting for the first time as characters in a radio series.
Max Saunders has done all the arrangements for Max Kester shows over the last six years ; Alan Paul has been the accompanist on the barracks piano in all the Legionnaires programmes (and will continue to be).

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.
