Following the success of the first one aired on February 2018 on France 2 (3,3 million viewers – 14% market share), the French broadcaster has ordered two new episodes of the historical show. After his journey into the history of the restaurant, the anchor Stéphane Bern and his guests will therefore make the viewers discover new amazing stories.

Synopsis: History is not just about kings, empires and battlefields. Everyday life is also filled with it: schools, transportation, restaurants, museums, courts, homes, clothing, workplaces, medicine, trade… We are surrounded from our very first day by institutions, places, objects and services and we have become so accustomed to them that we have forgotten they have their own history. Each of them was born centuries ago and evolved throughout the ages… THE AMAZING STORY is an entertaining experience and a new way to learn. Our anchor and his guests travel back through History. They experiment, decipher and recount the invention’s history throughout time and they role-play in historical reconstructions. Our time-travellers are also wearing the clothes and customs of our ancestors. They live their daily life. How will they face the journey back in time?
