The must watch show on TV Culture

Exposition Culture Tele

In the space of 80 years, TV has literally created a revolution in our daily life. The Musée des Arts et Métiers is dedicating a well deserved retrospective to the darling of French media.

This very playful venue, featuring collector objects and cult excerpts, retraces the history of the little screen, from the evolution of its shape to its content.

From the original large black and white box with a crackling sound and fuzzy image to ultra slim XXL screens including the invention of the magical zapper remote control, TV’s silhouette has changed a great deal. Same thing when it comes to the program offers from the first films aired on the sacred news show of Claire Chazal, from AB sitcoms to the clever talk-shows of Thierry Ardisson, games such as Question pour un Champion to the buzz of TV reality.

We adore: playing Miss Weather Girl in a real studio and giggling in front of the bloopers.
