Two hour-long TV programmes on Richelieu on Tours TV

If one clicks HERE one can view two hour-long programmes on Richelieu, the man and the town.
They principally concern the restorations of the twelve huge battle scenes taken into the care of Versailles at the demolition of the Château de Richelieu itself in the 1840s.
The paintings have been painstakingly restored (some are still in process), and finally three will he housed in the art museum of Orleans, three in Tours and six in the town of Richelieu itself.

The two programmes are in the series 'INSITU' and are called
"Richelieu à Richelieu"
and may be called up from this web page.

of course they are in French...
