    In the Middle Ages, master builders reinvented the art of construction to erect the Gothic cathedrals. In Paris, a vast building site gave rise to the most famous of these stone wonders: Notre-Dame. Seven centuries passed between the laying of the first stone and its restoration in the 19th century, during which time the cathedral witnessed some tumultuous moments in the history of France, from the most glorious to its darkest periods.

    This great historical sweep is told through a gripping documentary recreation using 3D animation, combined with exclusive footage and interview sequences to provide the context and explain the construction techniques to recount the destiny of the men and women who, driven by their faith, ambition and skill, built, embellished, and finally saved Paris’s cathedral. The Secrets of the Builders : Notre-Dame blends powerful drama and scientific rigor based on detailed historical research, resulting a in a new filmic language through which to recount history. The film is produced for France 5’s prime-time science slot. Historians, scientists, architects and engineers will be interviewed to bring factual elements to this epic story.

    A discovery that revolutionizes all research on mankind’s origins.
    In remote Morocco, in 1960, in the archeological site of Jebel Irhoud, a remarkable find was made: remains of Homo Sapiens. Today we can date them back to 300.000 years old.

    A discovery that rewrites the story of Mankind’s origins, because up until now, the oldest remains found went back to 200.000 years ago! A revelation that not only stretches the timeline of Homo Sapiens’ story, but also changes the geography of where we came from, the whole sub-Sahara region.

    The story of Anheherbe, the scientific research organisation the Reich used to justify its conquests and racial crimes. "Himmler, the leader of the SS, was convinced that we need to rewrite the past in order to control the present and dominate the future".

    Between History and Science, this doc highlights an unknown chapter of the “Nazi Center for Scientific Research“ settled in the 30s and dedicated to legitimate the political Nazi Project and the Final Solution. How could the Third Reich lead 10 years of scientific researches completely dedicated to support the Nazi ideology? How could some of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century turn away from lights and sink into darkness? How could they use science to serve a totalitarian dictatorship ? What secret projects and what ideological purposes motivated this Nazi scientific company ? This documentary will reveal the key to these mysteries.

    In the future, we will all be urban…
    Humans, inevitably it seems, want to live in cities. By 2030, two thirds of the world's population will be crammed into its cities, and that proportion will continue to grow. The results are already visible, with cities springing up anywhere and anyhow. 

    Some are extremely cold, others extremely hot, very high, very isolated or incredibly densely populated. The planet already has dozens of cities which, seen from our perspective, do not appear to be very appealing places to live. And yet, people like them and live in them, unaware that their daily life is a feat in itself. 
    Journalist Alexandra Alevêque will experience life in some of the most extreme cities in the world, living in each one long enough to learn about the locals' way of life.
    What she brings back is an insight into humankind's incredible capacity to adapt and find behavioural and organisational solutions.
    What do these unusual cities look like?
    What is life like for their inhabitants?
    What can we learn from them?

    Far from the frenzy of urban life, DESTINATIONS is an invitation to enjoy the simple pleasure of traveling to the four corners of the world to discover places that inspired the great artists, resulting in an exchange between a land, a town, a landscape and a work of art.

    The Provence of Cézanne, the Brazil of Stefan Zweig, the Kenya of Karen Blixen, the Catalonia of Salvador Dali, or the Japan of Katsushika Hokusai. The series will also take in places fashioned by mankind which have become legendary in their own right, such as Jerusalem, Harar in Ethiopia, the hanging gardens of Singapore, and the iconic Route 66.
    DESTINATIONS tells how these places have evolved through history, and which cultures shaped their character, their monuments, their music and their gastronomy. In 13 minutes, these films combine learning with the pleasure of delightful images and unusual encounters with local figures and artistic sensibilities. This is an invitation on a slow voyage, to satisfy an urge for adventure, with some enlightening stopovers to fire the curiosity, inspiring one to pack one’s bags and immerse oneself in the experience.

    In May 1992, a motorway near Palermo, Sicily, explodes killing Judge Falcone and several people of his inner circle, marking the climax in the war between the Italian State and the Cosa Nostra that killed thousands. One year later, after a 25-year manhunt, Toto Riina, the Godfather of all Godfathers, is finally arrested and brought to justice in a historic trial.

    In a 5-year in depth investigation, discover how a young rural mobster took power in the 1970’s over the Cosa Nostra, Sicily’s legendary mafia, torturing and killing each competitor one by one, becoming the most feared and violent organized-crime leader ever.  He broke the mafia code by declaring war on the Italian State, multiplying assassinations and establishing terror among government, police, the judicial systems and the Sicilian people.
     
    This is the story of the rise and fall of Toto Riina, through interviews of prosecutors, judges, police officers, lawyers and his own inside-men who are now repentant and have accepted to collaborate with justice.

    For 60 years, Fidel Castro was a thorn in the side of USA and a symbol of anti-imperialist struggle. Castro and his compatriots played a prominent role on the international stage and contributed to changing the world. 

    Award-winning producers Temps Noir (Cuba, an African Odyssey, Africa, history of a continent) and Brook Lapping (Obama Years, Putin, Russia and the West, Iran and the West) have put their talents together to produce a fascinating insider account of 60 years of Cuba’s history and its place in the world.
     
    Castro and his team changed the world in a way that was inconceivable for a mere Island in the Caribbean. By sending troops to fight alongside left--‐wing revolutionaries in Africa, and using soft power to influence other regimes in Latin America, Cuba–in Fidel’s words–"was a small country which behaved as if it had the resources of a great power". Moreover, he managed to get away with it for more than three decades.
     
    For the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution in 2019, with views from every side–the Cubans, the Russians, the Americans and the rest – this film will reveal the history of Cuba as never before.

    The working class has played an essential part of European countries’ history – through revolutions, wars and social progress.  In 4 episodes of a spectacular tale, this show reminds us of what our societies owe to the workers’ movements and its struggles.
     

    The story begins in the 18th century. But their fight carries on today. Much of our current democracies’ institutions and values flow from older working class demands: universal suffrage or social solidarity are some of its most telling examples. Our culture – the way we dress, the songs we listen to, the movies we watch and the mass-media themselves – heavily relies on the workers’ erstwhile popular culture. Finally, all across Asia, Africa and Latin America, millions of women and men experience lives similar to the 18th and 19th centuries’ European working class. We will bring out the present’s ever looming shadow by constantly flowing back and forth between history and current situations. Those contemporary testimonies and photographs will help us gather the threads of memory between yesterday and nowadays together again.
