After the assassination on Friday of Professor Samuel Paty, victim of a terrorist attack in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, France 2 has decided to upset its programming.

An “exceptional” evening is offered from 9:05 pm with in particular the film

The Heirs

, by Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar.

The film tells the story of a teacher's struggle to pass a national history competition to her weakest second grade.

The film will be followed by the documentary

Les Français c'est les autres

, written and directed by Mohamed Ulad and Isabelle Wekstein-Steg.

The documentary gives voice to young French high school students, mostly from immigrant backgrounds, who display a certain mistrust of their country.

External speakers and teachers question them to make them aware of their contradictions.

They then seem to get rid of their prejudices ...


At midnight will finally be broadcast the film

It's hard to be loved by idiots

, on the trial experienced by

Charlie Hebdo

for having reproduced Danish caricatures.

The unpublished fiction


, and the two episodes of the

Unit 42


will be reprogrammed later.

Tens of thousands of people gathered across France on Sunday to pay tribute to this professor from a college in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), murdered for showing his students caricatures of Muhammad.

An Islamist attack that aroused national emotion.
