.... there was a reality program that shaped the way we watched documentaries, it was called The Paras and followed the exploits of a group of Parachute Regt recruits in their quest to become Paratroopers. Over the weeks we got to know each person, cheered their success, cried at their failures, it was riveting viewing giving people an insight into a life few could dream off. 20 years later I am watching a program about plumbers. Now I have nothing against plumbers, but overweight geezers drawing their breath over a leaky facet isnât exactly death defying. What we having next ? OAP Pond tales ? When Chavâs collect their giros attack ?
