THE LILY OF KILLARNEY'
An Opera in Three Acts by Sir Julius Benedict
(Words by Dion Boucicault and John Oxenford )
Relayed to Daventry
THE STATION CHORUS-Chorus Master,
S. H. WHITTAKER
THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by T. H. MORRISON
Notes by JOHN RUSSELL
SIR JULIUS BENEDICT was a German who followed in the steps of Handel by spending a great deal of his life in England. He is remembered chiefly by The Lily of Killarney.
The Opera is founded on Dion Boucicault 's play, The Colleen Bawn. Hardress Cregan (owner of a large estate, heavily involved) and Eily O'Con-nor (a peasant girl) are secretly married. To relieve his fortunes Cregan is persuaded by Corrigan (who holds the mortgages) to pay court to a rich heiress. The plot is concerned largely with the efforts of Cregan and Danny Mann (a boatman, Cregan's devoted follower) to induce Eily to give up her marriage lines. Cregan's gloves, obtained from his mother (who favours the rich marriage) are sent to Eily as a sign that Cregan needs her, and by this means she is inveigled into a boat. An attempt is made by Danny Mann to do away with her. But Myles Na Coppaleen shoots Danny, Eily is rescued, the rich heiress accepts another suitor who pays off the mortgage, and all ends happily.
[An illustrated Libretto of the above opera can be obtained from the Manchester Station, price 2d., including postage. Listeners in the North of England can obtain copies through the Wireless Dealers.]

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.
