INTERVIEW

Atlantis Television - Le monde de Jamy

Why did you do a show on mountains?
Mountains, we perceive as being rigid and eternal, are actually in a perpetual transformation. It was important to cast a new light on those vulnerable giants and to understand that this beauty is not a coincidence. The mountain is a living place. We went to the Alps to understand the consequences of the climate change and in the Andes Cordillera where life is an event at 4000 metres altitude.

Our planet is not well. Is your show a way of sounding the alarm?
Our show is not alarming because I first wanted to show what a spectacle our nature was. Of course we need to alert, and our show is realistic, but to create an ecological consciousness it is important to explain how we came up with this beautiful planet.

You have a dream job. Are you aware of it?
I realise it every day, and I enjoy it in the right way of the term. The day you’re not amazed, it becomes dramatic. How could I be bored in front of such a spectacle? You have to let the beauty of things get to you, and be contemplative. But to me, contemplation always leads to questioning and the need to share my knowledge.

The world of Jamy isn’t made up of three bits of string.
This Wednesday night, volcanos, the big buildings of the world in the second show, “Le Monde de Jamy”. “It has nothing to do with “C’est pas Sorcier”, insists Patrick Charles. It’s a big production that some compare to what used to do Nicolas Hulot. We could also quote Frederic Lopez “Rendez-Vous en terre inconnue”; we are playing in wide open spaces, the amazing side of them. The idea is to take the viewer with us, as would a road movie do. But without the truck.

Le Monde de Jamy! it is not for children.
Actually, it is also for children, but not only. “We are not targeting the same audience”, remarks Patrick Charles. “C’est pas Sorcier” was in the young slot, here it’s for the whole family. We are targeting 2 to 2, 4 million viewers, which is 10 times more than what “C’est pas Sorcier” used to do on Sunday mornings. The bar is set higher.
