The title and subtitle of this French miniseries are "Six Times Two; Over and under the media". The "six" refers to the fact that there are six episodes; the "two" has a double meaning. Each of these episodes is a collaboration between two people: Jean-Luc Godard and his long-time partner Anne-Marie Miéville, but the "two" also refers to the fact that each episode has a two-part structure. The individual episodes run 100 minutes each, split almost precisely into two 50-minute sections.
Each episode deals with a specific theme -- history, women, labour -- with the first half being an overview of that topic, and the second half being a documentary interview with one person who somehow represents that very broad topic!
This is a thoroughly Gallic documentary series, with everything that the term implies; despite my passion for Godard's films, I found 'Six Times Two' to be extremely talkative and static. Reportedly, Godard himself did not have a high opinion of this miniseries.
