Evelyne Dhéliat, Denise Fabre or even Evelyne Leclercq… These women have contributed to the history of the PAF. Friday, December 16, France 3 chose to pay tribute to them by broadcasting Les Grandes Dames du petit screen, an unpublished documentary directed by Benjamin Colmon. The opportunity for the public to rediscover the journey of the most famous faces of TV.

“They invented concepts and styles that are still a reference today”, tells us the synopsis of the show, which gives a good part to the pioneers of TV. Like Jacqueline Joubert, the very first announcer who invented the “talk-show”. “She also created the cult ‘Récré A2’ allowing another speaker Dorothée to take the lead of a veritable empire for youth programming”, continues the summary.

Today, former announcers have succeeded in their conversion to the screen like Evelyne Dhéliat. From her debut at the ORTF in 1968, she established herself among the flagship presenters of TF1 where she presented several programs.

Like her, Denise Fabre has also marked the history of the small screen.
