France 2 is the largest public television station in France, it was also the first channel in the country to go colour in 1967, and is in closest competition with TF1.

In the above videos you’ve got the closest thing French television have to idents, their “publicité” spots, followed by a movie promo, two news openers from throughout the day and a primetime line up.

For more French Television, check out my posts on ARTE, France 3, France 5, TF1 and the France Télévisions group.

This blog is about television idents, right? Sorry about my mid week Chaser-tangents, how about this though? Another installment of France from afar.

Instead of looking at a specific French television station though these videos promote the whole French national broadcaster; France Télévisions ranging from France Ô to 5.

Its similar, but a little more dramatic to what the BBC and Channel 4 do.

The whole thing is incredibly elegant, and this combined with the fact I saw Paris, je t’aime last night makes me wish I’d spent more time in Paris.
