Le secret des choses

Educational program for children

Running time: 30 minutes

As its title suggests, the program unveils the secrets behind a variety of subjects of interest to children-from climatic phenomena and oil production to silk manufacturing and the inner workings of a beehive or an ant farm. Frédéric Back had to research these subjects in meticulous detail to produce rigorous, age-appropriate illustrations for his young viewers.
