Jane in London has faxed me an article that appeared in the Tablet about a reality show, The Monastery, on BBC2.
Isn’t that a fascinating idea for a reality TV show! Jane says the show is a real hit and has received positive reviews. I’d LOVE to see the same thing done on reality shows both in the US and Latin America.
The even more fascinating thing is how the monastery has seized upon the show, the media context, to embed itself into it seamlessly. You’ll love this: one of the reality participants, Tony Burke, an Advertising writer, helped with the website following his religious-awakening experience during the show!
