: "The Wooing Scene."

(" Cyrano de Bergerac ")
(Edmond Rostand ). People In the Scene :
Cyrano de Bergerac, Soldier, Poet,
Philosopher, Metaphysician, is the perfect type of the cavalier. Possessed of a heart overflowing with romance, he is cursed with a nose of such absurd proportions that no one can look on it without laughing. The genius of Rostand has made this extraordinary personage one of the greatest tragic characters in modern drama.
Cyrano loves Roxane, but his nose makes it impossible for any woman to love Cyrano. Roxano has fallen in love with Christian, a very handsome, but not very intelligent, youth. Cyrano, glad of any opportunity of expressing his love for Roxane-even at second hand-coaches Christian in the conduct of his courtship, and composes his letters and poems.
In the scene to be presented,
Christian's strange wooing has reached its crisis. He thinks he is now able to carry on unaided, but fails miserably, and again has to call upon Cyrano for help. Standing in the darkness under her balcony, Cyrano pours out the love in his own heart, in order to win Roxane for his rival.

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.
