In the French version, “Intercities” is a 140-minute show broadcast Live from a different town each week.
The spirit of “Intercities” has not changed since its beginnings. In 1962, Guy Lux and Claude Savarit created a popular show, based on a clash between two towns, a friendly battle involving physical and mental trials. The Games appeared simple but required indisputable experience and a measure of erudition for which Mistral Production held the secret.
Yves Launoy, who started working with Guy Lux as early as 1986, acquired over many years the savoir-faire of the show’s creator, which, today, guarantees the show’s permanence.
“Intercities” is always a live show, with two teams, and hosts who have succeeded one another in the service of a game known worldwide and one which brings together the greatest number of people.
It is a game of obstacles and cows [very real cows as those who were head butted can attest!], with an incredible atmosphere thanks to a wild public ready to defend its town.
Gathering audiences whose numbers reach a 40% share of the market, whether on TF1 or France 3, “Intercities’s” run has continued to run rampant, with Jean-Pierre Foucault, Patrice Laffont, Nagui, Julien Lepers, Tex and many more... all of whose efforts were in the service of this legendary show.
But “Intercities” is also about the athlete Nathalie Simon and her demonstrations, enthusiastic referees, the main challenge or, once again, the lively atmosphere upheld by the cheerleaders or music by Philippe Corti.
In short, “Intercities” is a tour throughout France, a game that cannot become dated and that brings together children and their parents!
