The ground breaking TV series on Channel 4
The brainchild of Aden Ikram
and Kate Bernstein
who dedicated a year of their lives hoping to uncover illicit voyeurists
in New York
The show takes you into the lives of every day people
, using pretty much every day technology
to do some pretty weird things
The show is based on all their footage and interviews that they have compiled into TV format.
Each week, the show concentrates on a different subject.
The last show I saw was about people publishing their every day diaries online
. People were putting their entire lives on websites
, free for public perusal
by anyone. Intimate details
, names, eveything. These websites are getting hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of page impessions
Another show was a guy walking around new york with a video camera
in a bag that he would hold down by his knees and walk around the city, into department stores or whatever, filming up womens skirts
My favourite show of all though, was the guy who takes a video camera
with a night vision
accessory into night clubs around new york and films people doing whatever people do in nightclubs
. It is pretty amazing to see how people behave
when they think they are under the cover of darkness
The guy also had a pervy
kind of twist aswell. He had this filter he could put onto the end of his video camera
that could kind of see through light material
, like sun dresses and skirts.
One of the most interesting things about the show, apart from the insight into modern voyeurism
, is that the voyeurs
and the showpeople are not perverted
old men and raving lunatics
They are young
, smart people
just doing what they like to do.
It is a fantastic show that anyone curious about modern society should watch.
