Reality Television: Who cares?

 This month we consider the new landscape for reality television production which demands a more caring environment. After high-profile suicides and a Parliamentary enquiry, Ofcom changed the Broadcasting Code in 2021 to demand better welfare and ‘duties of care’ for participants. Yet at the same time survey reports from unscripted production crew outline serious concerns about working conditions in reality television.  So what does this mean for reality TV and their participants? Professor Helen Wood and Dr Mhairi Brennan will share insights from their AHRC research project entitled ‘ReCARETV: Reality Television, Working Practices and Duties of Care’ - which considers policy, production and participation in the UK ‘unscripted’ television sector. The talk will last approximately 40 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A/discussion.
