: A. K. Hamilton Jenkin: Midsummer Eve in Cornwall

Mr. A. K. Hamilton Jenkin has made a special place for himself as an authority on old customs in Cornwall, and he has done a very great deal to revive and stimulate interest in customs which were often not understood by those who continued to practise them. Tonight, whilst the bonfires are gleaming out along the rugged hilltops of the West, he will discuss Midsummer Eve in Cornwall, as it was and as it is.
The custom of lighting bonfires at this season of the year, and of leaping over them, and driving cattle around them, is older by far than any written history, and is or was to be found in almost every country of Europe. Mr. Hamilton Jenkin will describe what a wonderful sight it is as, amidst the roar and crackle and driving clouds of smoke, the names go shooting upwards on some dark, rock-strewn hill-top, and how the chain of fires thus lighted, spreads eastwards from the Land's End to the Tamar borderland.


Speaker: A.K. Hamilton Jenkin

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.
