: SERIAL READING

'Cornish Hero'-21
A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy, ' The
Penhales'
Read by Geoffrey Tandy
The family threads are drawing together. Ortho Penhale is home again, the war with Spain being ended. But he is a cripple, and enforced idleness stares him in the face. Naturally he returns to his old game-smuggling on a large scale.
Meanwhile, his natural son-the only heir of the Penhales, though he does not know it - is appointed lieutenant-in-charge of the Preventive Service on the coast and becomes engaged to Ortho's niece, Jennifer.

: Keeping House in the Jungle

Gwen Richardson
There is a good deal of talk nowadays of settling refugees in British Guiana, on the uplands where there is some prospect of their making good in agriculture. British people do not often penetrate into British Guiana's hinterland, but Gwen Richardson , who has been gold prospecting there with her husband, has a lot to say about life in the jungle, which turns out to be unexpectedly healthy and full of interest and excitement.
Gwen Richardson is the author of 'On the Diamond Trail in British Guiana'.

: International Swimming

England v. Denmark
A commentary on the 100 metres Men's Free Style, and the 400 metres Ladies' Free Style, by Stewart MacPherson , from the Empire Pool and Sports Arena, Wembley
This is the second night of an international swimming, diving, and water-polo contest between England and Denmark at the Empire Pool, Wembley, which opened on Saturday.
Particularly interesting will be the women's event. The Danish women's team are recognised as the finest team in the world.
Schoolgirl Inge Sorensen has a breast-stroke action of pure classical beauty. Her time of 8 mini. 1.9 sees. for the 500 metres is a world record. The Danish women's relay team hold the world record for the 4 by 100 metres. The leader is Ragnhild Hveger , seventeen-year-old daughter of an engine driver. She has been hailed as the greatest woman swimmer of all time, and holds an unbroken sequence of fourteen world records for free-style swimming.
In the men's events England's chances are more promising. In addition to winning most of the races, they should also prove to be superior in diving and water-polo.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
