I find it tacky personally. I found the Irish programme much more dignifed and also much more something that non-mothers or non-pregnant people could relate to.[/quote:3boevpud] I honestly don't understand how you could find it tacky? I'm genuinely confused as to what you mean by tacky? And if you're not interested in videos of birth experiences then (and i'm not being smart here) why would be interested in either of these programmes?[/quote:3boevpud] I'm not interested in One Born every Minute. I watched a few minutes of the first two episodes and it disturbed me so I would rather not watch it again. The trailers of the Irish one looked more promising to me as they showed a lot about the staff and the fathers, so I decided I would tune in and see what it was like, and I liked it. So I gave both shows a chance, I like one and I don't like the other. I just think people's most private experiences, like the birth of their child, is their own business and I would rather not watch it, so I don't. I find reality TV to the extreme of having a film crew involved in your child birth process to be rather tacky TV. I am sorry if I'm not explaining this clearly enough for you, but I suppose it's just how I feel. I believe that Channel 4 are producing it thus so as to shock people rather than to evoke people in any positive way. The one birth scene in the Irish programme was filmed and shown in a more dignified way so I didn't find it tacky, although husband and I both said we could have done without seeing it, but overall the premise of the show was so nice that it didn't put us off watching again. I hope my explanation makes things clearer for you.
