When Godard was approached by the National Audiovisual Institute to make a 100-minute feature to fill one of six Sunday night slots on FR3, Godard made a counter-offer to fill all six slots, with the airdate for the first slot a month and a half away. His first foray into television, made with Miéville, was this 10-hour 12-part investigation of our place in the mass media universe. For Godard, it was just a beginning, a rough sketch. It remains a bracingly fresh work that sounds through the mediatized cacophony like a morning bell.
