Milford Behaving Badly on TV

It will come as no surprise to hear that Milford on Sea contains many characters, and on Tuesday 6th October at 10pm you can meet some of them in a new BBC4 TV programme entitled 'Close to the Edge'.

The new series is a scripted reality show, similar to existing hits like; Made in Chelsea and The Only Way is Essex. Close to the Edge is set in Bournemouth and follows the lives and loves of a group of real-life friends (rather than actors) in their 60s, 70s and 80s.

The cast includes "a business entrepreneur, a comedian dating again for the first time in 40 years, and a political activist".  A little bird has told us that the show will also include Milford on Sea residents; Dee Major and Ann Bovingdon. 

The pre-show publicity says that: 'Later-life romance will pay a part in the drama, but the show will also examine issues such as loneliness, and how to rejuvenate a career. Impending death will also be a theme. According to the BBC, the show will look at how its cast feel about approaching "the end that will eventually greet us all". The cast are complex, funny and outspoken – and like most things in life, get better with age.”

Sounds like compulsive viewing to us!
