Irish viewers had a HUGE reaction to new RTE show Raised By The Village

"Raised by the village had me in tears"


RTE viewers had a huge response to new TV show Raised By The Village.

The show follows children who are from urban environments as they embark on an experience living in a small rural community.

The show evoked a mixed, but emotional response from TV viewers.

Many applauded the show for it’s raw portrayal of parenting.

Other’s criticized it, claiming that it showed a stereotypical and negative picture of children from urban areas.

Last night’s episode saw 13-year-olds Melita from Tallaght and Jamie Lee from Clondalkin move to Clonaslee, Co Laois.

The children spent their time in the village learning the basics of agriculture and assisting the local gardai.

Jamie in particular was praised by viewers for his openness and genuine nature, as well as his willingness to participate in the show’s challenges.

On this week’s Gosscast Goss.ie Founder Ali Ryan talks to Lisa Cannon about her best and worst celeb interviews and the reality of working in showbiz.
