What does our evening look like on the screens? What theme emerges from the programs?

What theme emerges from the programs?
The evening can be summed up in two words: anniversary and scandal!
On April 5, 1971, 343 women signed a manifesto published on the front page of the Nouvel Observateur.
It was 50 years ago.
Abortion was then prohibited.
800,000 abortions per year, 5,000 deaths and traumatized women.
That was abortion 50 years ago.
Thanks to an excellent documentary broadcast on Histoire Tv, the behind the scenes of what was a scandal are thus revealed.
The MLF activists recount this fight, how they managed to convince Simone de Beauvoir to get involved with them, how the philosopher especially opened her address book to mobilize personalities.
We do not measure what was the suffering of women.
We must hear these testimonies like that of Xaviere Gauthier who evokes his clandestine abortion.
Subject still relevant, since on Sunday a new manifesto of 343 was published in the JDD demanding the extension of the time limits to resort to an abortion.
A fight far from won.
Scandal and anniversary also on TMC.
Twenty years ago, a show revolutionized television: Loft Story.
The adaptation of Big Brother then caused a wave of indignation in France.
Media outrage in the face of popular enthusiasm.
M6 recorded audience records by giving birth to reality TV confinement.
A documentary, certainly not very critical, but well done, thus tells this televisual epic.
To summarize :
"Manifesto of the 343, behind the scenes of a scandal" is to be seen on Histoire TV at 8:50 pm and "The 20 years of reality TV" animates the evening of TMC from 9:15 pm.Keywords:
