La Cinq

This private channel was, in a way, a sister channel to the Italian Canale 5. La Cinq had some success, but didn't live as long as its Italian counterpart: it closed in 1992 after only six years of existence; however, many viewers still remember La Cinq.

The empty space left by La Cinq was filled by Télé Emploi, a public channel created in order to help people with finding jobs; then Télé Emploi was replaced by La Cinquième, a new public channel dedicated to education and documentaries.

On January 7, 2002, France Télévisions introduced a new look for its three channels. At the same time La Cinquème changed its name to France 5, in line with its two big sisters.

The colour green was chosen to symbolise "fertility and freshness" ("la fertilité et la fraîcheur"). As the colours of France 2 and France 3 are red and blue, the green colour completes the RGB colour model.

The first new look for France 5 came in March 2002. The idents for this look showed filmed scenes where a flood, whirl or burst of letters suddenly appear. Other parts of the identity for France 5 was minimalist with moving text on solid backgrounds in pastelle colours.


After a while, France 5 changed graphics again. The "flood of letters" theme was kept, but this time the letters themselves would form objects and scenes against pastelle backgrounds.

A new look was launched in October 2008.

In 2008, France 5 left its minimalist idents and graphics. This idents now feature choreographed people.
