Close to the edge - cast group

If you read articles, whether online or in print, you are unlikely to avoid the overnight frenzy about the new constructed-reality television programme from the producers of “The Only Way Is Essex” or TOWIE, and “Made In Chelsea”.

“Close To The Edge” – a new Electric Ray production for BBC Four – is scheduled to air later this Summer and since the news broke, the “cast” photo has been featured by OK! magazine online, The Telegraph (twice!), The Guardian, The Standard, The Daily Mail, Metro News, The Radio Times and many many more publications.

Close To The Edge is set in Bournemouth with all of the cast from the local area.  The six-part series will follow the cast’s everyday lives with a focus on more serious issues than those reality programmes usually follow – including education, divorce, sexuality, gender roles, and yes about death too.  Speaking about Close To The Edge, BBC Four Channel Editor Cassian Harrison said: “It reveals the passions, predilections and prejudices that beat as strongly in the hearts of the over-60s as any other generation.”

Barbara is currently looking over my shoulder and would like you to know she “is the baby of the group” !!
