In this week's France in Focus we take a look at France's most prestigious award, the Legion of Honour. We gain rare access to the palace where key decisions are made and take a look around its accompanying 19th century museum. During the show we explore how you become a "legionnaire", the history behind the award and why some controversial figures have been given the title.
