THE AMAZING STORY

THE AMAZING STORY

60 to 120′ – Factual Entertainment (since 2018) – France 2 – Produced by Capa Presse (Nicolas Valode and Philippe Levasseur)

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?
