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.
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.
