"Il etait une fois" is science, history etc for children, and this is the advantage for the foreign learner: we have all done this, heard it at school, learnt it. We know the contents, here they are presented in the words we want to learn.

If you like educational TV for kids, then you must check out C'est pas sorcier. They have hundreds of episodes on YouTube. Really well done explanations of Science for middle grades. Fun topics too, like “How do they make candy?” I found it really understandable even when I was just starting out, because as a grown-up you already have a good idea what they will teach the kids, and because the visuals closely match the narration.

I think I watched the very first episodes of "C'est pas sorcier" many years ago. I don't remember the channel on which they were broadcast. They seem to do a repeat of the episodes on the "Gully" youth channel on Wednesdays: http://www.gulli.fr/Chaine-TV/Emissions ... as-sorcier.
I remember that there were subtitles at the time, YouTube doesn't have them.
