A Comedy in One Act by Seumas O'Kelly.
Scene. Outside a farmhouse. The house frontage is to the left. A wheelbarrow, a wooden trough, are against the wall, a birdcage hangs beside the door. To the right is a hedge with clothes drying upon it. Facing the mind's eye there is a low wall, in which there is a little wooden gate leading into the public road. In the background stretches a sweep of hilly country.
Maria's voice is heard in shrill dispute with cackling fowls as she drives them along the road. As the quarrel dies down Johnny Claffey enters through the gate whistling, a bundle of hay on his back. He deposits the hay and calls out, 'Maria, I say, Maria!' and the play begins.
Reminiscences of Ireland...arr. Chas. Godfrey
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.
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.
