Le Téléthon : étude comparée en France et au Mexique

Abstract : The Telethon is a program that has been successfully adapted to French television by the tandem of Groupe France Télévisions – Association française contre les myopathies (French Muscular Dystrophy Association) since 1987, and to Mexican television since 1997 by the Televisa television group, which is a member of the Mexican Fundación Teletón. This thesis compares the adaptation of this format that is repeated annually in various parts of the world, and focuses on these two specific cases and their contexts. To accomplish this, the heterogeneous support was mainly composed of experience in the field, audio-visual material from the programs broadcast in 2006, and two official publications to commemorate the Telethon. This research is based on the comparing researcher's views and highlights her awareness of her subjectivity in its interpretation. This comparative study is thus part of a conceptual framework in order to understand the Other and consequently to define the complexity of the Telethon more clearly. Each of the programs is individually dissected to show what the format currently offers for the visibility of the handicap. Inspired from the UNESCO universal declaration on cultural diversity that was adopted in 2001, the dialogue thus intervenes as a major condition throughout the study and as a result introduces into the debate the contribution of the television to public health. Finally, it can be seen that the Telethon is correlated with the combat against the illness among the other fundraising events and that it also concerns health education
