To discover or rediscover destinations in an original way, is the theme of these original French broadcasts. New experiences, humour etc. These broadcasts make viewers travel from their sofa's, in a funny and unusual way while enriching their culture. 

1- VERY FOOD TRIP, a beautiful taste round-the-world

Very Food Trip is a broadcast on Planete + which takes viewers for a culinary round-the-world trip. Marine Mandrila and Louis Martin cross 10 countries: Lebanon, India, Nepal, China, Vietnam, Siam, Japan, Mexico, Peru and Brazil. They cook with residents, discover unknown food, foreign spices, share meals with them and much more. 

2- THE NEW EXPLORERS, for the constantly curious

The theme of the broadcast The new explorers (« Les nouveaux explorateurs » in French) on Canal + is simple: a new country, a new theme. We discover a lot of themes and get the chance to see the world from a different angle. Here are some examples of themes in the broadcast:

- Don’t tell my mother: Diego Buñuel, war correspondent, offers viewers a different angle on war/tension zones.

- Globe Cooker: Frédéric Chesneau, a chef, gets to the root of recipes and ingredients.

- Nomad Land: Christophe Cousin reports about nomad populations from the Himalayas and Siberia.

- Music, sport, trains, culture… This broadcast touches on numerous themes and goes round the world thanks to original subjects.

3- I’LL STAY AT YOUR PLACE, living with local residents

I'll stay at your place ('J’irai dormir chez vous' in French) is a French program which is broadcast on France 5. Antoine de Maximy goes all over the world, with the objective to invite himself to sleep at local residents homes. This broadcast allows viewers to see directly into the culture and local life of the country where Antoine de Maximy is. Between good and bad meetings, humour, a lack of understanding, sharing moments and situations full of tension, the viewers share the daily life of Antoine de Maximy and discover the world with him. 

4- NAKED AND DARING, the off the wall broadcast

Naked and Daring ('Nus et culottés' in French) is an off the wall broadcast on France 5. Two travellers, Nand and Mouts, have the objective to realise their dreams  of seeing a bear in the Pyrenees, meeting a druid in Brittany etc., but they embark on their journey naked, with no money. Throughout the show they gradually gain clothes thanks to swaps, favours and generosity from the people they meet. This broadcast is funny but allows the viewer to take a step back from the world, with beautiful life lessons to learn.

5- TRAINS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER, humans at the heart of travel

Trains not like any other ('Des trains pas comme les autres' in French) is broadcast on France 5. It is a broadcast which is filmed wholly on trains. Every episode shows one or more country, through a route on railway lines. We discover unusual, archaic or state-of-the-art trains and also the history, culture and populations of every country. The broadcast is original because it takes place fully onboard trains. The human dimension is very strong, because meetings and conversations are at the heart of this broadcast.

Thanks to these types of broadcasts, we have the opportunity to discover the world differently. If you're constantly curious, these programmes are for you!
