Thanks for pointing it. I also find it very good, very funny.

Maman a Tort, 6 part mini-series adapted from Michel Bussi's novel.
Malone, 3 ans, confie à Vasile, un psychologue de son école, que sa maman n'est pas sa vraie maman. Convaincu par l'histoire de cet enfant, Vasile décide de se rendre au commissariat du Havre, où il est reçu par Marianne Augresse, commandant de police au SRPJ. Son enquête sur un hold-up n'avançant plus, Marianne accepte de recevoir Vasile. L'histoire de Malone semble invraisemblable, mais Marianne décide de réagir. Une mini-série de six épisodes, adaptée du célèbre roman de Michel Bussi.

Radio Europe 1 have a programme dedicated to TV series, Serieland:
Deux fois par semaine, Eva Roque et son équipe de sérivores évoquent les fictions qui posent un regard acéré sur notre société en compagnie d'invité.e.s de renom : Scénaristes, réalisatrices, comédiens, techniciennes, producteurs, mais aussi autrices, sociologues, psychologues... SERIELAND vous raconte les séries par celles et ceux qui les aiment et les font.

La figure du flic dans les séries, le règne des super héros, la représentation des violences faites aux femmes, qui regarde les séries pour ados… Chaque mardi, la journaliste et ses invité.e.s se penchent sur un thème de société. Si vous ne savez plus quoi regarder, SERIELAND vous recommande chaque semaine une série à voir absolument, avec sa chronique conseil. Si vous voulez tout savoir sur l’envers du décor, la chronique coulisse viendra satisfaire votre curiosité.

Et le jeudi, Eva Roque vous propose un grand entretien avec une personnalité du monde des séries.

Recently I've been watching a current affairs programme, C dans l'air.

Interesting how they mix masculine and feminine professional qualifications: "scénaristes", "sociologues" and "psychologues" can be both here, "réalisatrices", "techniciennes" and "autrices" are feminine, "producteurs" and "comédiens" are masculine.
It looks like an attempt at parité (unless they exclusively invite female authors and male actors) but female professional qualifications outweigh male ones by 3 to 2...Maybe "du flic" is is supposed to make it 3-all.
Anyway, that seems to be a very cumbersome way to make sure equal gender representation is reached.

Yes, I thought that when reading it. When I got to that point I assumed it was probably a programme like Radio 4's 'Woman's Hour'!

Pleased to note this is accessible from my location in the USA. Although I watch a lot of documentaries, current affairs are a pleasant change. Thanks.
