Its so recognizable stamp will no longer resonate on the antennas of France Télévisions.
According to our information, the public group has decided that the collection of documentaries "A House, an Artist" will henceforth do without the voice of Patrick Poivre d'Arvor, who created this meeting in 2011, three years after his ousting from the 20 Hours of TF1.
It is a new personality who will comment on the new burst of new episodes scheduled this summer on France 5.
France Télévisions thus reacts to the Patrick Poivre d'Arvor affair, which loses its last media exposure there.
Since a first rape complaint filed by author Florence Porcel, 26 other women have testified to sexual violence in court.
16 of them filed a complaint, including 8 for rape.
PPDA categorically denies all of the charges against it and attacked the plaintiffs for slanderous denunciations.
The day after the publication by France 2 of the magazine "Complément d'Enquête" devoted to the fall of PPDA, the MeTooMédias association, created by several of the women who testified, had challenged the management of the public group: "It's important and touching for us to see that our stories have been heard on France Télé.
To our knowledge, the man we accuse is also still at the head of a program still broadcast on this same group.
It's a problem, isn't it?
It's important and touching for us to see that our stories have been heard on @Francetele.
To our knowledge, the man we accuse is also still at the head of a program still broadcast on this same group @Francetele.
That's a problem, right?

Every summer for 11 years, "A House, an Artist" has shown viewers the residence of a creator.
Last season, Patrick Poivre d'Arvor, who never appears physically in these documentaries sometimes directed by his daughter Dorothée, visited places dear to Michel Legrand, Jean d'Ormesson, Rosa Bonheur, Gustave Caillebotte, Azzedine Alaia or Pierre Cardin.
The issue on Jean Gabin's La Pichonnière stud farm in Orne was watched by 620,000 viewers.
France Télévisions is not the only one to erase the voice of Patrick Poivre d'Arvor.
The electronic music group Bon Entendeur has removed from the Spotify platform and from their YouTube channel the title "Entrevue Optimiste", from their first album "Aller-retour", which consists of a long monologue by the former journalist of TF1 in which he defends "the French genius".
