The Farm (2004)

Show Summary

In this new factual entertainment series of The Farm on Five, 9 celebrities live together on a farm with no running water, no electricity, no modern toilet facilities and no mobile telephone for one month. While they dwell in isolation, they must cultivate their own food, collect firewood and tend farmyard animals. The organisers, Five, hoped that the series would educate a wide audience on the source of their food and also provide entertainment showing how metropolitan celebrities cope with the reality of rural life. The series certainly delivered on the entertainment front. For the fist time, major magazines acknowledged a Five show. Rebecca Loos' masturbating a pig put one of the channel's shows on the front page of a national tabloid newspaper for the fist time in its seven and a half year history. Before The Farm, Five didn't have a very good history with reality shows. Its only major attempt (Back To Reality - 2004) failed. The show was first broadcast in Norway in 2001. It is produced by the Endemol company. The company produces the popular Big Brother (UK) and The Salon series for Channel 4 and Fame Academy for the BBC. Four months after the end of the successful first series (which attracted over 2 million viewers), Five announced that it was planning a second series of the show with a new group of celebrities. It broadcast 18 episodes of the second series from the 9th of May 2005 and featured 10 celebrities living in slightly more luxurious accommodation than the group in the previous series. The second series was moved from the usual 10pm slot to a 10.30pm slot. This rescheduling and Five's adding of two porn stars (to make the show more outrageous) caused a slight decrease in the size of its audience. There is zero information about any other series of The Farm.moreless
