XENIUS
Xenius
is a science magazine programme in a 26-minute format, broadcast from Monday
through Friday and addressing a family audience.
Each programme is focused on a single topic, attempting to answer a question through
reportage, interviews and games. The question itself creates the unifying theme for each
episode of the programme and is both simple and rooted in the daily experience of viewers,
while the intention is always to awaken their interest, whether they be French or German.
Xenius
has two alternating anchor couples. Each takes viewers through the programmes in a
dynamic and entertaining way. Depending on the focus for the episode, the two presenters may
be more or less actively involved in the various experiments and explanations. The witty,
cheerful approach of the anchor couple combines and the programme’s graphic design to form
the trademark of
Xenius
. These various elements have become established as indispensable
parts of the programme.
Each report gives a clear account of one of the aspects of the question set at the start of the
episodes, which are shot mainly in France and Germany. As they address each new subject,
the presenters and guests intervene in the action, rather than facing the camera. The overall
tone of the different sequences remains, however, uniform throughout the programme, in
keeping with the playful spirit of the presentations.
