: Je Suis Hopeful

The theatre of Jean-Louis Barrault jean-louis BARRAULT'S contributions to the theatre of this century are immense and wide-ranging. He is a great classical actor who is also a leading member of the avant-garde, a film star (best remembered for his star role in the film classic Les En-, fants du Paradis) and for 29 years the manager of the only privately-run theatre company in the world to be commercially successful with I an uncommercial repertory.
The Compagnie Renaud-Barrault, which he founded with his wife Madeleine, has been without a permanent home in Paris since the ' events' of 1968. Last year. Jean-Louis Barrault rented a railway station in the heart of the city and set about building a theatre. The film follows the building of the theatre, from its beginnings among the rubble of the old station to its triumphant first-night opening. Interwoven with the theatre construction sequences, JIM DOUGLAS HENRY interviews Barrault about his career, marriage and future. Written and narrated by JIM DOUGLAS HENRY

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.
