I was listening to a piece on a new reality tv show on this morning's news.
I don't know alot about it but I believe it was filmed in Mexico.
Its a new reality tv show involving 40 kids who are left to fend for themselves in a deserted ghost town.
The ages of the children I believe are between 8-16. There is no adult supervision. The only adults are the camera crew, a child psychologist, paeditrician and a doctor.
It seems to me that reality tv is sinking to new lows and really I am more inclinded to question the parents who allow children as young as 8 to take part in this. They go through the voting of process and this would be emotionally traumatic to an 8 year old, infact to pretty much any age.
In some ways I think maybe its a good idea, it teaches children to get along and gain some independence but overall I think its just another way to attempt to win tv ratings.
