French TV

Old and new

The network feed of France 3 has a presenter led CSO edition of Édition Toutes Régions. A pan-regional edition of 18h30 is across the two Normandy sub-regions using a soft set with a magazine format.


Nice to have a more dynamic feel compared to the news bulletins which seem to have employed 100% static camera shots in studio since the current look came in.

They certainly love a good strike the French. What is the change that's been made - is it moving the regional news from within 19/20 to a new slot at 18:30?


They’ve added a new slot for magazine/feature-type programming leading into the regional news. So there’s about an extra 20-25 minutes of regional airtime been added.

I was surprised the France 3 network feed just didn't take the Paris IDF edition, they take Ensemble c'est mieux !, a mid-morning regional magazine from the Paris IDF region.

I suppose it's better than sticking on the red thing during the 1830 news on BBC One HD in England.

The network feed of France 3 (Sat) is the only transmitted version that’s carried in the overseas territories, as well as via a couple of providers in Metropolitan France (Bis), and of course on Swiss and Belgian cable, so I guess it’s seen more as a channel in its own right than BBC One HD England with its red placeholder.

We've probably covered this at some point in this thread but how much regional content does France 3 have nowadays, and other than the local stations like BFM Paris is it the only national network with regional opt outs now?
Here's to the next 20 ye.....

Oh!

It depends on the region, but there's quite a lot (compared to the UK) now. The average region has the in-vision radio simulcast of their France Bleu morning show (approximately 7-8.45am), then Vous êtes formidables and Ensemble c'est mieux ! 10.15-11.30am and 12/13 11.53 (yes, 12 o'clock news at 11.53am)-12.25pm. The evenings follow with Le 18.30 6.30-6.43pm, 19/20 6.50ish-7.25pm, then there are several regional documentary blocks which occur a few times per month mid-week. On Sundays, there's a political block Dimanche en politique and Saturday has an hour of regional programming either side of 12/13 .

Just watching a few of these 18.30s and they are the type of chit chat nonsense you get on one of France's many local channels anyway. Lille and Rouen seem to have made a reasonable attempt but this does seem messy, so maybe waiting for September as the unions proposed would have been the best thing.

Lets not forget that there's also France 3 Corse via Stella for Corsica and France 3 NoA for Nouvelle-Aquitaine which are both hyperlocal stations with content that is fully from both regions that are spin-offs of the local F3 regions.

France 3 also uses the ITV model for some regions, which have sub-regional news, but also have pan-regional non-news content. For example France 3 Hauts-de France is made up of two sub-regions, Nord Pas-de-Calais (Calais/Boulogne) based in Lille for the northern part of the region and France 3 Picardie in Amiens for the south.

I'm wondering if Franceinfo could have improved the placement of the disabled guest this afternoon? It may have been better to remove the other half of the sofa so the guest could face the presenter instead of him just being left there like that on the edge of the sofa?

What does France 3 (Sat) shows instead of the regional news? Also is France 3 (Sat) also carried on Canalsat, and all of the other major cable and satellite providers in France?

France 3 (Sat) shows a national version of the regional news called Édition des Regions in lieu of taking a region, this can either be presenter led or narrated. It shows the best of the regional news stories from across France. It's similar to the former UK Today which used to be shown on BBC One on digital before it was regionalised.

France 3's network feed is at 19.2E, the home of TNTSAT and Canalsat is soft encrypted. The network regions are also at 19.2E and on Fransat, which is on the Eutlesat satellite at 5W which is also soft encrypted.

Thank you for answering me, BTW I am starting to think that maybe BBC One made the wrong decision in closing UK Today.....I mean that would be a lot better than the red screen BBC One HD, but I digress

BBC London or the News Channel with a "turn to 1/101” message supered over the flipper would be better than the red screen.
Write that down in your copybook now.
