Doctors scorn reality TV – ‘The Undateables’
Jenny Cockerel – writes in The Star – Doctors have accused reality TV programme The Undateables of exploiting people with disabilities for entertainment.
Dr Rachel Pickering claimed the Channel 4 show, which follows people who suffer from a variety of conditions as they try to find love, had left her “disturbed at being part of a society that might seek to view the disabled as comedy” at the British Medical Association’s annual meeting.
And her fellow BMA delegates voted “overwhelmingly” in favour of raising their concerns with the popular series’ producers.
“Why don’t the BMA leave this alone! – These kids are amazing!”
