French public television: a political maker? interventions by Gorges Pompidou Prime Minister, 1962-1968



ID: <10670/1.lf6o5p>


Ever since the beginning of the Fifth Republic the question was : how to succeed general de Gaulle who single handedly embodied the new system ? Georges Pompidou tried to answer the question by using the television. Thanks to a good strategy of communication, this neophyte was able to establish himself, during the six years spent at the Matignon Palace, as a real politician. He was careful to signify simplicity, closeness and human warmth, in a contrasting style to the General’s, to acquire the necessary legitimacy to attain the high office of President.
