Paris at the time of New York

This collection features reports by the journalist Jacques Sallebert, head of French TV's New York bureau. From 1963 to 1969, this TV trailblazer covered a wide range of stories: New York itself (Greenwich Village, the subway, building the city's bridges), the different communities (the Black middle class, the Jews of New York, the Basques of California), the geopolitics of the period (China-US relations, Vietnam), and US politics (the funeral of JFK and the presidency of Lyndon Johnson).

Check out INA MEDIAPRO for this fascinating documentary footage, with unique insights into the period.
