: Fine Cut

Madame L'Eau
Like the cast of an African version of The Last of the Summer Wine, three friends from the Niger pursue their dream of building a windmill to irrigate their arid land. Damoure, Lam and Tallou travel to Holland on a fact-finding mission, wobbling through the lowlands on borrowed bicycles, before returning to carry out their scheme on the banks of the River Niger.
Film-maker Jean Rouch first met farmers Damoure and Lam in 1954, while making his film Jaguar, and nearly 40 years later it was his description of Dutch windmills that gave rise to this story.
The three farmers return home fired with enthusiasm for these extraordinary "monsters" that promise to pump the water on to their thirsty fields. But will windmills prove to offer a real solution or remain a beautiful but impractical dream?
The final credits note that the film was "lived and improvised by" the cast, an acknowledgement that Rouch's documentary technique is closer to that of a feature film than the more familiar "fly-on-the- wall" approach. Series editor Andre Singer

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.

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.
