Sabine Quindou and Fred Courant are in the field. They visit places, interview specialists and introduce questions that Jamy answers. Before 2011, Jamy Gourmaud was in a laboratory truck. Now, he goes to symbolic locations relevant to the topic with a mobile laboratory equipped with touch screens, computer graphics and of course the models that made the success of the show from the beginning.
