Border Security: Live TV or Fake?
« on: April 11, 2010, 08:18:32 PM »
Me and my brother are having an argument about Border Security, a Channel 7 show about tourists/drug dealers (mainly asian) getting caught smuggling drugs, animals etc. to australia (again...mainly asian). I still don't believe its all "real", yet my brother believes it is. Anyone watch this show?, what your opinion on it and many other "live" shows

I'm pretty sure it's real, I mean they always have the sign up "Filming for Border Security" at the airport, right?

Yeah agreed with TrueLight- I don't think it would be fake. What I'm wondering is if they got the permission from the people that they filmed if they could broadcast it on tv...

I think I remember that one, was that on tv a while ago? Apparently they said he was really really smelly (lmao) and he didn't know how to use a shower... :S If not, I might be thinking of something else :P

With heaps of people from so many different backgrounds coming in everyday, it's not uncommon for stuff like this to happen ;D
