A new reality show which has been described as “a bold experiment”, is hitting the television screens tonight (Tuesday 6 October).
BBC4’s show ‘Close to the Edge’ is about a group of over 60s in Bournemouth and the first and second episodes are being broadcast from 10pm.
It is described as a documentary series “mixing elements of story-telling techniques from drama and documentary in a bold new form”. Like popular reality shows ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ and ‘Made in Chelsea’, it will feature real people “devising and improvising many of the scenes themselves” as well as entirely scripted scenes.
Mags4dorset was asked to help in the filming of the show earlier this year and November’s 4Dorset will include an article about the part it played.
Entrepreneur Babs Fowler, who was featured in 4Dorset in June, makes an appearance in this first episode and looks set to steal the show with her larger than life personality.
So keep on watching the programme and look out for mags4dorset getting in on the act.
