    This current affairs documentary investigates right-wing terrorism and how it’s related to the political polarization across the Western World, through an ongoing investigation conducted by European intelligence services.

    Extreme right-wing terrorism is becoming an ever-bigger threat in Western societies. Since 2015, sixteen terror attacks have taken place in Europe. Far-right violent extremist groups are now the second most important threat after Islamic terrorism in Europe and white supremacism has become the greatest terrorism threat in the US. This risk has become even more present with the current crises that our societies are facing, such as the isolation related to COVID-19 or the war in Ukraine. This close-up investigation delves into the cases of previous terrorist attacks worldwide and gives voice to present and former far-right activists, victims, militants fighting ultra-right and antiterrorism officers. This film raises awareness on a growing threat which represents a critical challenge to our democracies and tries to understand the link between these acts of terrorism and the growing political polarization and the mainstreaming of extremist beliefs in contemporary societies.

    But did you know that our feathered, furry and leggy cousins have mastered it too? Way before we did, animals discovered plants, fruits, mushrooms and other animal species that get them high...

    Does this altered state of consciousness serve any useful purpose for the species that indulge in it, or does it actually harm them? Do some animals seek pleasure for pleasure's sake? What are the effects of this high on the group? Can animals become addicts? And finally, what can they teach us about our own taste for these substances?

    Researchers are delving into the grimoires of the brilliant medieval Arab civilization to find treatments for infectious diseases. Over a 1000 years ago, Arabic scientists initiated modern pharmacy by bringing together knowledge from ancient history and faraway lands, which they then experimenting with and enriched.

    To help invent the medicines of the future, a cross-disciplinary team has come up with an innovative approach: making something new out of something old! A microbiologist with a passion for history and a historian who was also trained to be a chemist, immersed themselves into old manuscripts from the medieval Arab world, which dated back to the year 1000, to unearth forgotten anti-infective treatments, replicate and test them in a lab. Using modern techniques, the team hopes to derive new antibiotics and thus contribute to the fight against antibiotic resistance, which is one of the greatest challenges that medicine is facing today. In following their quest, we uncover a fascinating and little-known period of history, between the 7th and 15th centuries, when a brilliant civilization stretched from Spain to the banks of the Indus. These two stories, though a millennium apart, are proof that the future can be rooted in a brilliant past, provided we can revive long-neglected knowledge.

  • DATA WARS – TIK TOK, THE WEAPON OF THE 21ST CENTURY

    Algorithms and data are the new weapons in the war that is being waged between the major world powers. This film reveals what lies behind TikTok's extrodinary rise. 

    For several months, investigations carried out by journalists and information gathered by various intelligence services have shown that TikTok allows the Chinese government to access hundreds of millions of data from American and European users. This data is fundamental when it comes to conducting influence or cognitive wars and can be a real weapon in the event of an armed conflict. A war of narratives is thus being waged: banning TikTok means preserving the liberal order embodied by the United States in the face of the Chinese Communist Party, which would use artificial intelligence to undermine democracies. This emerging doctrine within public opinion, crystallizing around TikTok, is just the tip of the iceberg. Algorithms and data have become strategic assets for governments. Having control over them is essential in an increasingly polarized world.

    A suspenseful diplomatic chronicle about how the US tried to balance its democratic ideals with the practical considerations of its realpolitik during WWII. The climax of this struggle happened at the 1945 Yalta conference, where the “Big Three” (Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin) met to plan the postwar reorganization of Europe.

    The documentary unfolds like a theatrical drama, with Roosevelt, a dying idealist symbolizing a military superpower; Churchill, the leader of a declining empire with sharp political acumen; and Stalin, a master of deceit at the height of military dominance. A fresh perspective on the 1945 Yalta critical conference through a narrative focusing on the interactions among these key figures. From a macro to a micro viewpoint during the conference, using the lens of "the little mice," witnesses like Charles Bohlen Roosevelt’s’ translator and diplomat, the documentary captures the human interplay before and during Yalta.

    An international team of archaeologists explores the heart of Saudi Arabia and the Black Desert of Jordan to find out more about the oldest megastructures in human history. An extraordinary story with spectacular discoveries and breathtaking landscapes.

    In the North of Saudi Arabia and South of Jordan lie thousands of mysterious geoglyphs whose shape, when seen from the air, reminds us of giant kites. The oldest of these immense stone structures were built around 7000 BC, predating the Egyptian pyramids and the spectacular Stonehenge monument by over 4,000 years. Who designed these structures and why were they built? Using cutting-edge technologies, an international team of archaeologists led by French researcher Rémy Crassard and Franco-Jordanian research fellow Wael Abu-Azizeh are trying to solve this mystery, as they are determined to shed a new light on the little-known Neolithic period.

    A unique documentary at the heart of ongoing investigations into child sexual abuse, with key players and experts in cybercrime. Every day, millions of sexual predators and offenders log on to the Internet, while children are spending an increasing amount of time online.

    In 2021, it was estimated that 85 million photos and videos depicting children being raped had been posted worldwide, most of them involving children under the age of 13 (some of them were infants). This phenomenon takes place not that far away from us and it's far from being something abstract too; it's a growing global threat that affects all children and teenagers. It is a global, cross-border phenomenon that questions the transformation of a society in the digital age. Presented as a detective story, this program aims to shed light on the workings that we never see, to look at the violent reality. Thanks to unprecedented access, viewers will be immersed in the day-to-day work of French, German, American, Canadian, Filipino and British agents, who received special training in undercover work. Interrogation techniques, understanding the defendant's psychology, setting up an arrest operation when they're caught in the act, court appearances....

    Organic farming is becoming increasingly mechanized and globalized. An international investigation inside the organic industry, filmed with hidden cameras and revealing the first in-depth study on the exact composition of the biopesticides that are produced by agrochemical giants.

    Behind the fantasy of purity lies a darker reality: the agroindustry has progressively set aside the principles of organic farming to apply the same methods as conventional agriculture. The crisis in the sector, which has been lasting for over two years, is twofold: it's first a trust crisis due to numerous scandals involving fake organic products, the discovery of dubious social and production practices and state attempts of corruption but it's also a production crisis. Indeed, it's no longer possible to keep up with demand and the lowering of production costs to meet the demands of mass distribution, which has become the main sales channel. This exclusive investigation is produced by the same team as Mass-market retailing: The End of a System?

    He was the world's best-known Russian opposition leader: Alexei Navalny was in serious condition after being poisoned in 2020, arrested in 2021, and has been locked up in prison camps ever since and repeatedly sentenced to additional years in prison. How did Navalny become Putin's fiercest opponent? Where did he stand politically? Was he the democratic hope that his inner circle portrayed him to be?

    Russian filmmaker Igor Sadreev has been working on Navalny in secret for a long time. After the Russian attack on Ukraine, he smuggled his extensive filming equipment out of the country and left Moscow. On arrival in Berlin, he was able to complete the film with his colleague, journalist Aleksandr Urzhanov. Alexei Navalny died in prison on February 16, 2024.

    A new light on the unprecedented economic and financial crisis in Lebanon that are jeopardizing the Middle East’s stability. Major financial institutions are ready to help the country get back on its feet, but endemic corruption is wiping out any hope of finding a solution.

    The country’s major financial institutions all want the same thing: for Lebanon's political elite, which is made up of former warlords and billionaires, to take action and put an end to the country's endemic corruption by accepting reforms and opening the central bank's accounts to find out how much money has been lost or embezzled over the last few decades.This is a decision that the kleptocrats who rule in Beirut firmly reject, despite the desperation of the Lebanese population whose standard of living has plummeted.

    What is the price of sugar, this delicious poison? Starting with sequences set in the present day, this historical investigation reveals a global system still fueled by the exploitation of land and people that is rooted in its original sin: slavery.

    What is the price of sugar? How much does the fleeting pleasure of this delicious but useless poison really cost? It's a global addiction that has been fueled by the exploitation of land and people for over five centuries. Sugar was the basis of a civilization which, from the transatlantic slave trade to modern forms of exploitation, has never ceased to brutalize labor in all its forms, and to perpetuate immense lies in order to guarantee the prosperity of its industry. The whole world has been shaped by sugar. From Brazil to Réunion, from Europe to South Africa and from India to the Dominican Republic, its production has laid the foundations for the modern capitalist system, devastated the environment, and led to massive population movements. As the curse of sugar continues to haunt certain parts of the world, we set off to these exploited lands to discover a history of which we are all heirs.
