The Fighting Cock by JEAN ANOUILH , translated by LUCIENNE BILL with John Clements as the General Sarah Badel as Aglae Wendy Murray as Sophie James Aubrey as Tarquin Mendigales Michael Aldridge as Baron Henri Belazor Written during the wilderness years of General de Gaulle, The
Fighting Cock of the title is also a general, and he too lives an exiled life in his backwater country house. There. like some
20th-century Don Quixote , he tilts against the windmills of moral corruption and seeks to expose the maggots of decay infesting the fruit of society. Indeed, so obsessed is he with his self-imposed crusade that he fails to notice the dangerous cracks that are threatening the fabric of his superficially serene domesticity.
Directed by DAVID JOHNSTON

John Baxter boldly goes into the unknown in the company of Kingsley Amis. J. G. Ballard,
Buster Crabbe, Thomas M. Disch, John Fowles and an assortment of mutants, aliens and bug-eyed monsters from film, literature and broadcasting.

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.
