Société Radio-Canada (SRC) TV Network

Canadian programs on Société Radio-Canada Television (SRC) since its inception (by year of launch)
While this list of national network programs is extensive, it is not necessarily comprehensive. We are grateful to the sources listed below, whose assistance has been invaluable, but we welcome additions both to the list and to the program details section, and corrections where necessary. 
Our Foundation does not hold copies of any programs, and it is our experience that very few program series that involved viewer participation were ever made available to the public. Anyone hoping to find a copy of an old show should go to the website of the station/network on which the program appeared, and ask if they can help.

Les enfants de la télé

Hosted by Véronique Cloutier and her co-host Antoine Bertrand, Les enfants de la télé assembled together a hodgepodge of francophone showbiz personalities every week, whose successful and less successful exploits were revealed and celebrated via archival TV, movie and Web-based excerpts. The guests were then asked to comment on and discuss their career in view of these archival images.

Les enfants de la télé was inspired by a French TV show, with the same name and was first broadcast by Radio-Canada on September 15, 2010.


Les chefs!

Les chefs! was first broadcast on Jue 14, 2010. Hosted by Julie Bélanger and Daniel Vézina, it featured contestants engaged in a culinary competition.

14 aspiring chefs faced off against one another in a culinary competition, in which they were required to make use of a Quebec-based terroir product in their recipe. Every week, one contestant was eliminated.

The overall winner received a $50,000 prize, namely $20,000 to be spent in the Relais & Châteaux (three in France and three in Québec), as well as two cash awards of $15,000 each.


Broco show

The Broco show was a daily morning variety show for children, co-hosted by Annie Brocoli and her loyal companion, Germaine, the squirming vegetarian frog.

Every week, two young participants were invited into the Grand Ballroom of the mansion to take up three challenges with Annie Brocoli and the broco-singers: to sing, to disguise their friends and to dance a choreography with Annie.



The host Mitsou Gélinas shared her enjoyment of eating good healthy food with chef Stefano Faita and researcher Richard Béliveau. Every week, Kampaï! featured a special kind of food, for example, olive oil, green tea or ginger. A guest chef often joined the team to explain how to make the best use of the ingredient that wasn't generally found in a conventional cupboard or fridge, whether it was algae or a spice like curcuma. Richard Béliveau described the positive effects that this food could have on our health.
