    Neurosciences and new technologies are revolutionizing education. Meeting with scientists and innovators as well as teachers, children and parents all around the world, this miniseries answers an urgent question: how can science help us shape the school of tomorrow?

    The correlation between social class and school performance is a major issue across the world. This miniseries in two episodes is an attempt to go beyond ideological approaches of the problem. It is a pragmatic, scientific and international exploration of education techniques.
    Modern day technology raises many unprecedented problematics: two thirds of students will hold jobs that have not been invented yet and 47% of current jobs are expected to be replaced by machines.
    Discover the school of tomorrow: an exciting topic that concerns everyone, especially parents, because it impacts what they care about the most – the future of their children.

    Insomnia, sleep apnea, and narcolepsy are massively increasing in the world. In a scientific investigation, we will discover the new methods developed to find sleep: fractional sleep, light therapy, helmets that stimulate the brain. 

    Consequences are huge: sick leave from work, billions of dollars lost for companies, and worse: obesity, diabetes, early Alzheimer. The science of sleep has become a major priority for researchers, so much so that the Nobel Prize in medicine has just been awarded for the discovery of the internal biological clock.

    Human consciousness, which is unique in the living world, has remained a mystery of divine origin for thousands of years. But today, recent and spectacular scientific progress (from medical imagery to quantum physics) is starting to shed light on it.

    I think therefore I am. But who thinks inside of us? Who are we? This film takes us on a journey beyond our brains. Like conscience, human intelligence has propelled Man to the peak of evolution, giving him the opportunity to dominate the world. And yet today, intelligence would see to have broken down. Average IQ is dropping. Through this investigation into the nature of intelligence and multiple intelligences, we discover the reasons for this breakdown, and how we can give our intelligence another boost, thanks to scientific progress, including brain cell transplants.

    Via the epic of continental drift, we travel to all 4 corners of the planet, to meet scientists who are carrying out state-of-the-art research on the most emblematic landscapes of each geological event.

    With these scientists, and thanks to their work, we discover the sites in a new light – landscapes that we often see but rarely look at closely. The journey also establishes the key reference points of life alongside the geologic time scale - the appearance of life, of plants, of terrestrial life, dinosaurs and Man punctuate the geologic time scale.

    An investigation into the Saint Louis giant and the recent developments it has made in biotechnology and seed control.

    Since its beginnings in 1901, the Monsanto empire has been built upon on the manufacture of chemical products that have ended up being banned from the market. Every time, the multinational has lied, hidden or doctored studies that demonstrate the harmfulness of its products. It has had proceedings brought against it and been ordered to pay hefty fines, but that has not stopped its irresistible ascension.

    Today, it is the world leader in GMO production.  The transgenic seeds it markets are resistant to the powerful herbicide, Roundup, its landmark product for twenty years.

    This documentary is about the baby's vast world of perceptions, from intra-uterine life to the first months that follow birth, as seen unveiled by scientists today.

    From the seventh month of pregnancy, the foetus five senses are already developed. In its closed universe, the baby begins an extraordinary exploration using all its senses. How does the baby perceive its world and ours? What are its capacities for learning and memorizing? What happens when it enters our world of air and gravity, a world that has no possible comparison with the womb where all its needs were satisfied almost instantly? With great precision, and with a certain awe and wonder, this documentary reviews current knowledge of the baby's experiences and faculties, before and after its birth.

    To most of us, plants make up a familiar background decoration, albeit a beautiful one, but we don't really pay them that much attention, nor do we know much that about them. This collection is an invitation to discover more about four common plants and their astonishing properties.

    Scientists, farmers, economists and sociologists will help us to view the Nettle, the Arabis, the Yew and the Lotus in a different light, as they reveal the plants' uses and new technological, medical, economic and social properties. The collection features interviews with geneticists, the head gardener at the Chateau of Versailles, an Indian industrialist and an Australian botanist, among other professionals, as they invite us into their laboratories, on their expeditions to the ends of the earth, or quite simply, around their gardens.

    At a time when our society is in full reflection on its relationship to biodiversity, we travel the world to discover in what way these plants have become our partners in life.

    We delve into the secret life of four ordinary plants, and discover their "extraordinary" side:
    - the nettle, a symbol of the fight against merchandising living things
    - the lotus, a tool-box for tomorrow's technologies, inspired by nature
    - the yew, a medicinal tree, the new "green gold" threatened by over-exploitation
    - the arabis, a little-known plant that has become the new worldwide star of genetic research

    A spectacular journey, blending knowledge with pleasure, and surprise with wonder.

    Why is the sky blue? Where do we get our ability to see in colour? Why can't we dye things green with plants? Why do Yves Klein's blue monochromes move us, and why are they recognised as major works of art? And why, for example, is the colour red so important in many cultures?

    This collection sets out to decipher the world of colours, calling on several disciplines, experts and practitioners - physicians, neurologists, artists, ethnologists, colour consultants, historians, craftsmen and marketing managers - each in their own way personally and deeply connected to the nature and mysteries of colour.

    From the iridescence of a butterfly's wings to the bodywork of a car, from rupestrian paintings to a Christian Lacroix fashion show, from Masai rituals to the colours of the highway code, "CRACKING THE COLOUR CODE" takes us on a spectacular journey, blending knowledge with pleasure, and surprise with wonder.

    Since the beginning of time, human beings all over the world have made use of plants for healing purposes. These three documentaries, that can be show separately, tell the story of medicinal plants.

    Two-thirds of the Earth's population still rely on some form of traditional medicine. In Africa, Asia and Latin America, complex and subtle medical knowledge has survived to this day, handed down via comprehensive oral traditions.
    Meanwhile, in the West, with the development of medicinal chemistry and universal access to health care during the first half of the 20th century, traditional healing practices and the use of medicinal plants gradually came to be seen as esoteric pastimes.
    After a gap of almost a century, the West is rediscovering the benefits of plant medicine. As a result of the new recognition that medicine needs to centre around the person as a whole, we are taking another look at this traditional discipline. Plant medicine, which has continued to thrive unabated in the southern hemisphere, is now experiencing a revival in western countries.

    This collection draws up the main aspects of climatic change. Sea level rise, growing desertification, deforestation, melting ice at both poles and melting of the glaciers as well as extreme climatic events are already affecting some parts of the world.

    This collection draws up the main aspects of climatic change. Sea level rise, growing desertification, deforestation, melting ice at both poles and melting of the glaciers as well as extreme climatic events are already affecting some parts of the world. While the satellites observe the unsettle state of our planet, and the scientists analyze the new climatic data trying to simulate tomorrow's climate, some populations are being exposed to this environmental chaos. They are in fact already witnessing a change in their way of life. Yet their efforts to adapt are sometimes not enough any more and the first migrations of climatic refugees are starting.
    We chose places in Oceania, Africa, Asia and North America that are representative and particularly exposed to climatic disruption. In each of these areas we met a population which had been badly hit by an ecological disaster. We show how they are directly engaged in the fight against this sequence of deteriorations in their ecosystem. They tell us how climate change affects their lives, giving us an account of the impact of global climate system disorders at a micro-local level.

    Can the phenomenon of today’s allergy explosion be rationally explained? This documentary endeavours to understand the phenomenon, by highlighting the true environmental causes and the protection strategies we have at our disposal.

    In the course of her investigation, the director unpicks the classical theory that attributes allergies to a natural flaw in our immune system, making it erroneously target inoffensive elements necessary for life, such as pollen, for example, and sheds light on industry's role in the spread of this modern scourge. Highlighting the lack of testing on the effects of pesticides and antibiotics before putting them on the market, challenging the notion of "background doses"... Patrizia Marani blows the lid off the dubious practices of the pharmaceutical laboratories and agri-food corporations, showing how, day by day, their chemicals are weakening our immune systems.
     
    An uncompromising investigation.
