Patrick Poivre d’Arvor provided the voiceover for the program “A house, an artist”, broadcast on France 5. This will no longer be the case for future broadcasts. Article written by Published on 05/13/2022 12:36 Updated on 05/13/2022 13:06 Reading time: 1 min. TV and Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, it’s over. The ex-star, accused of sexual assault and rape, will no longer be the voice-over for the program “A house, an artist”, which returns this summer to France 5, France Télévisions announced on Friday May 13. It is another personality who will comment on this summer series of cultural documentaries, created by PPDA in 2011, first under the title “A house, a writer”. Patrick Poivre d’Arvor did not appear in the image and we only heard his voice, but it was the last television show in which he participated, 14 years after his departure from the TF1 newscast in 2008. Each episode of “A house, an artist” retraces the journey of a personality, most often cultural (like Jean Gabin or Dora Maar in the last season), in connection with one of his emblematic residences. On April 28, France 2 broadcast the program “Complément d’Enquête”, including several testimonies overwhelming the former presenter. In the process, the MeTooMédias association, created by several of its accusers, had challenged France Télévisions on Twitter: “It is 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 show still airing on this same group. That’s a problem, isn’t it? Seventeen women filed a complaint against the former presenter, including eight for rape. Sixteen of them, whose complaints were dismissed in June due to the statute of limitations, are currently the subject of a PPDA complaint for “slanderous denunciation”. In total, at least 27 women testified against PPDA in the press or in court, including two minors at the time of the alleged events. For his part, Patrick Poivre d’Arvor disputes the facts.
