: THE SOUTHERN SISTERS

with Betty Southern and Robert Docker at the two pianos in A Miniature Cavalcade of Song
Listeners will welcome back to the air the Southern Sisters, who spent the whole of June entertaining at the Bellevue Strand Hotel, Copenhagen, and broadcast from Copenhagen-a great honour for foreigners -during their stay.
They took part in the most important festival of the year-the Midsummer Feast. Bonfires are lit all along the beach and sent out to sea with a witch sitting on top of her broomstick. Thus ill luck is sent away from Denmark.
This afternoon they intend to sifig the Danish festival song, in Danish.

: 'CORNISH HERO '—22

The final instalment of the serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy ' The Penhales', read by Geoffrey Tandy
Here, in the last instalment, the various threads of the Penhale family are drawn tight together. What is the end. of Ortho, ' the black Gypsy', the smuggler, the irresistible adventurer? Does his son, Tony Trevaskis of His Majesty's Navy, ever know that his father is the one man he has been hating above all others, and pursuing in the name of the law? What has Mary, Ortho's sister-in-law, whom he himself once courted, been feeling all these years?
All these questions are answered
(many of them unexpectedly) in this afternoon's reading.

The patrons of this famous hostelry take up A.R.P. work
A truly rural episode, written by Charles Penrose and produced by Ernest Longstaffe
Cast and Rae Jenkins's Buskers
Miriam Ferris, who took over her present part in 'The Pig and Whistle' when Muriel George left to go into a London show, has been broadcasting from the earliest years of radio. Many listeners will remember her 'Savoy Hill Memories' Programmes. You have heard her in 'Life Begins at Sixty', and she has worked with Ernest Longstaffe for fourteen years, taking part in every radio pantomime but one since she started.
In silent-film days Miriam Ferris appeared in a number of pictures, and has also had considerable stage experience.
She is married to Denis Noble, and lives down in Hertfordshire, close to Charles ('Pig and Whistle') Penrose, and radio actor Norman Shelley.

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.
