A Play by AMELIE Rives (Princess Troubetskoy)
The Persons :
Colum Dara , a fisherman
Michael Dara , his younger brother Ganore, a sea-woman
Widow Dara. mother of Michael and Colum Sara Darcy , a young vixenish woman A Priest
Neighbours; Voices of the sea-women, Ganore's
The Scenes :
I. A cave opening in a great arch on the sea, with rocks at its mouth, and the sea gushing among them. The tide is at the flow and the moon shining.
II. The kitchen in Kathleen Dara 's cottage.
III. The same, but twenty years later.
Faith in the old gods dies hard; and per. baps it is this that keeps them still immortal.
To this day the Irish fisherfolk of the West believe that, if due rites be observed on the sea's edge, a sea-woman, a daughter of the gods, will cast ashore her crimson cloak. And if a man take it up, her love goes with it; and she will follow after him to be his mate and comrade, come what may of it.

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.
