Colombe

by Jean Anouilh
English version by Denis Cannan
Adapted for broadcasting and produced by Wilfrid Grantham
[Starring] Margaret Ward, Michael Gwynn and Phyllis Neilson-Terry
Other parts played by Heron Carvic and Anthony Creighton
Scene: Paris in the year 1900

Colombe is mature Anouilh, first produced in Paris in 1951, a pièce brillante that is indeed a dazzling example of theatrical pyrotechnics. The eponymous heroine is a flower-girl married to an idealist who happens to be the son of a great actress, Madame Alexandra (as some would say, Sarah Bernhardt, just as her pet dramatist is often taken to be a caricature of Edmond Rostand). When the young man has to go for his military service Colombe goes to work in his mother's theatre, and there she learns that there are more kinds of love than the absolute varety, advocated by her husband and usually practised in poverty and a garret. The play has been much assailed for its bitterness, but I for one cannot understand the meaning of the epilogue of not to admit amongst other things) that once Colombe and Julien were truly in love. (Peter Forster)

Cast in order of speaking:
Other parts played by Heron Carvic and Anthony Creighton
Scene: Paris in the year 1900
* Colombe is about the theatre. Or, more accurately, its background is the theatre. As to what it is about, it will be no surprise to anyone that M. Anouilh is again going on about the transience of love, a theme which has obsessed him profitably, on and off, throughout his career as a dramatist ... *

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.
