MediaWatch

Holiday time!

MediaWatch puts France's obsession with holidays under the spotlight: The predicable media coverage of where ministers are going on their summer breaks and what celebs, royals etc are in France this August. Tourism figures are down this year, however, as a result of the state of emergency and recent attacks. We also take a look at the famous "chassé-croisé" where France's motorways choke up under the weight of French tourists heading south and others returning after their July break.
