An alarming thought:-
The very first Reality TV show, much earlier than Big Brother and the rest,
may have been 'Living in the Past', first screened I think in the late
1970s, about people living in a recreated Iron Age village, loosely modelled
on Butser. There were animal sacrifices, Beltane ceremonies, and some of
the (female) participants going about au naturel, for reasons I cannot now
recall (other than the obvious ones). I believe one of the couples involved
split up in the course of the series.
We had better not say too much, as some of the participants may now be on
this list, but I suppose we ought to be proud that our profession was so far
on the leading edge of what has proved to be a major cultural trend. I
think we should all seek a written undertaking from David Connolly not to
take his clothes off on camera for any pretext whatever.
