Launch of the book “Génération Canal Famille”
A whole generation was marked by Canal Famille, the youth channel which offered daring series such as In a galaxy near you, Radio Enfer and Télé-Pirate.
Youth programs Bibi and Geneviève, The Intrepid and Pin-Pon were also launched on Canal Famille, born in 1988. Well-known actors who are still in the business have taken their first steps there or have made a remarkable passage there, such as Michel Charette, François Chénier, Guy Jodoin, Claude Legault, Joël Legendre, Élyse Marquis and Sophie Prégent, to name a few.
To trace this rich history, Simon Portelance and Guy A. St Cyr offer the book Family Channel Generation, published by Québec Amérique and whose launch took place on Monday evening in the presence, in particular, of Jean-François Beaupré, Vincent Bolduc, Sophie Dansereau, Daniel Dõ, Guy Jodoin, Élyse Marquis, Yves Soutière and Gilbert Turp.
Abundantly illustrated and containing several interviews, Family Channel Generation is the genesis of the shows and it will certainly take fans back to their childhood or their adolescence.
Since January 2001, Canal Famille has been replaced by VRAK.TV.
