||From its beginnings as a small fishing village inhabited by the Parisii during the third century B.C. through Caesar's conquest of Gaul and its acquisition of the name Lutetia, from its consecration as the capital of Capetian France in the 10th century through Villon to the student rebellion of 1968, Paris has been synonymous with France as no other national capital is. This program tells the story of Paris and its people: kings and councilors, poets and painters, architects and gardeners..rich and poor, aristocrats of ancient lineage and new immigrants, people of exquisite and those of execrable taste-Parisians all.
