Reality programmes dominate TV and some of them, such as MasterChef do a really good job of raising the profile of cooking, chefs, restaurants and suppliers. Programmes such as these also belittle the blood, sweat, tears and talents of cooks and chefs who spend years in training with sometimes very little reward.
So, how do you feel about a reality competition for librarians? Would an increased profile of librarianship work in our favour with funders and the general public or would it be too superficial? I imagine this may result in some strong reactions so please add your thoughts to the comments.
