The tiger trade, fashion in times of pandemic, CB Strike, ... Our selection of television programs


A dive into tiger trafficking, fashion at the time of the pandemic or a portrait of the genius Raphaël, the adaptation of JK Rowling's thrillers… What should you watch this week, or not, on television?

"Facing crime: the tiger trade", Tuesday, January 19 on National Geographic, 9 pm

Tourists photographed with baby tigers in their arms, hand-to-hand trainers with tigons (both tiger and lion hybrids).

These images are reminiscent of the hit Netflix series

In the Kingdom of the Wild.

If, in the episode of the collection “Face au crime” devoted to the tiger trade, journalist Mariana Van Zeller gives the floor to the very tattooed Joe Exotic, breeder and trainer of wild animals in a sensational zoo in the United States, this isn't to make him a hero like in the Netflix blockbuster.

The reporter shows in a detailed investigation the hidden face of a juicy business of which Exotic was a central character ... Before ending up in prison.

He is serving a twenty-two-year sentence there for trying to sponsor the murder of an animal activist!

And for mistreatment of his wild animals.

Still, the enthusiasm of the public has never been so strong.
