'Meet the Commissioner' Was Both Farce and Tragedy

The introduction of Police & Crime Commissioners was a genuinely radical move. Unaccountable bureaucracies were replaced with a single, elected, accountable person. PCCs should make policing more democratic and transparent. They should be driving a revolution in the relationship between the police and the people. They should be doing great things.

Penny Fordham

But I can't help but feel that the format of 'Married At First Sight' tarnishes that. Just as you may buy an item of clothing to try on at home, decide you don't like it and return it to the shop with your receipt, Channel 4's new show seems to imply marriage is something that can be taken lightly as you can get out of it at the first sign of stormy waters.

The series is called Married at First Sight and it does pretty much what it says on the tin: it takes two strangers, gets them to marry, gives them six weeks to see if they can make it work and then asks them to decide whether they want to stay together or not.

As a feminist, I do feel frustrated by the lack of women in broadcasting but also think exploration of masculinity is just as valid as that of femininity. One is as important, complex and relevant as the other.
