La Chaîne parlementaire (French pronunciation: [la ʃɛn paʁləmɑ̃tɛʁ]; French for The Parliamentary Channel) is a French television network created, along with its sister station Public Sénat, by law on 30 December 1999. [1] [2] It films and broadcasts live and recorded debates twenty-four hours a day, including committee hearings, questions to the government, and discussions concerning parliamentary debates and government policy. There are programs that focus on different levels of government; some programs are about Europe, others about local government. Linked to Public Sénat from its inception, the two channels share content. The Public Sénat chain also broadcasts a nightly news analysis program and funds and broadcasts documentaries.
