A reading from ' Irish Vignettes' by Ella MacMahon
This moving little study of 'an old poor Irishwoman living in an old poor Irish cabin' is from the author's ' Irish Vignettes ', published in 1928. Ella MacMahon was born in Dublin. Her father was Chaplain to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, and she saw at first hand all sides of Irish life. She served in the War Trade Intelligence Department during the war and gave talks on literary subjects in the early days of broadcasting. She has written much for various magazines and periodicals as well as in the daily Press, and particularly on historical and archaeological subjects. She is the author of a number of publications. A story of hers, ' The Raffle ', is to be broadcast on Sunday, August 15.
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.
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.
