When TV gets it right

Last night was the first in a new series called The Convent, in which four women from wildly differing backgrounds check in to a convent for 40 days. Yes, it’s reality TV, and yes, it’s what all reality TV should be like – offering people the relatively un-manipulated chance to experience something new and potentially life changing.

It’s a follow-up series to one called ‘The Monastery’ that was on about a year ago. Fascinating, life-affirming brain-food. And what’s more, you can watch it all online (thanks to Jonny B for the link).
