It was very family-oriented, all generations were present”again greets the manager.
Alexandra Redde-Amiel also highlights great audiences for this program which marked the return of broadcasts with “a real audience” after the health crisis and the confinements. “We are at 14% of 15-24 year olds. On all our targets, the audience was there. Our goal was to bring the family together on this show”.
“A communion with the public”
This Grand concert will have been a big project to set up for the channel: “40 artists, a hundred songs, a live broadcast and 20,000 spectators. It’s a lot of stress. We were like parents who take care of everything, and everything went well. Top animators, artists who have given everything, a communion with the public”.
The entertainment director of France Télévisions adds: “Montpellier is a very beautiful city, with large places that allow you to settle in the media with very large structures”.
Alexandra Redde-Amiel also pays tribute to the collaboration with the municipality on this project: “It was a real pleasure to work with the City and its teams who have real expertise. We thank Michaël Delafosse and Carole Delga who have been by our side throughout this operation”.
What to consider now other emissions of this magnitude in Montpellier? “There is nothing concrete so far, we haven’t talked about it yet. We are currently debriefing the show by viewing the images that have been shot”.
