About Historically Yours: 

The Lehman Brothers, Mont Saint-Michel, King Charles V, the German-Soviet pact or Nélie Jacquemart… Every day, at 3 p.m., Stéphane Bern invites listeners to discover, through a long story illustrated, the true story of a character - a woman, a man - who marked History, who also changed it, sometimes by going under the radar... Characters, but also places where History takes place is played, or significant events that Historically Yours has chosen to tell you about, in the presence of a guest for whom the theme has no secrets.
