With the exception of Arhab, and one or two reporters on the regionally based F3, it is rare to see any minority ethnic journalists in the main news programmes of any French channel. In Britain, by contrast, minority ethnic presenters and reporters feature regularly in the national news broadcasts of all the main channels.
