Summary

  • "Although German culture has predominated since the Middle Ages, the Francophone minority in Switzerland has managed to keep its French heritage and traditions... but not without difficulty. This program retraces the struggle of the canton of Jura to split from the domination of the German-speaking canton of Berne in the early 1960s. Many tensions remain on both sides of the linguistic divide, testing the limits of bilingualism when the sides do not share the same economic well-being"--Container.
