Sometimes obsolete, sometimes shocking, sometimes even comical, taboos and laws shape the face of our planet. Hosted by Christian Laurence, the show goes out to meet those who respect or transgress prohibitions. By trying to understand what drives them to honour or question the collective reality principles, we get to know their country’s customs and habits better.

Tabous et interdits is the show that humorously and intelligently draws a singular worldview of people’s identity by observing the rules that define them.
