EastEnders or The Tube?

Reality TV on The Tube

Not sure whether it's classed as reality TV or "fly on the wall documentary", but the new series of
The Tube starts tonight on ITV1 at 7.30pm (I think it might only be on in the Carlton region).

The Tube TV Series starts tonight

I caught the last series on cable as it missed it first time round and it was a cracker. All credit to the Tube really, as some of the characters on it were hardly glowing beacons of customer service and they definitely chose people with character rather than those who would just toe the party line. (Miranda and Darren were personal favourites of mine).

There was a slim chance that I might have been on it this time as I was having fairly regular chats with the production team at Mosaic - but I spose the idea of someone taking the odd picture of people on the tube or sitting at computer writing about the Tube was not quite rivetting enough for them at the end of the day.

Tonight's episode "follows the British Transport Police's anti-graffiti unit as they go on the trail of TOX, the Tube's most elusive graffiti vandal" and there's also filming of Tube staff tackling fare dodgers.

Check out the rest of the series here.
