Des racines et des ailes is a French television documentary series created by Patrick de Carolis and Patrick Charles in 1997. Des racines et des ailes is broadcast two Wednesdays per month on the France 3 television network and is rebroadcast on TV5. De Carolis hosted the series until he was appointed Chief Executive Officer of France Télévisions in July 2005. Since September 2005 it has been hosted by Louis Laforge.


Des racines et des ailes is based on the dual concept of "neighbourhood" and "world view"; "neighbourhood", since episodes of Des racines et des ailes are produced in a single city, place or community chosen for its uniqueness, and "world view", since it deals with aspects of the society of France and of other countries.

Since 2001 a number of special editions of Des racines et des ailes have dealt with French or European art cities, museums, an historical location or a period in French or European history. To this end, the series has been able to enlist the cooperation of French heritage associations and the Musées de France.
