Next Episode of Boys and Girls Alone is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
An ambitious and sometimes controversial four-part documentary series sees ten boys and ten girls aged between eight and eleven being given the chance to experience life without mum and dad for two weeks. Living in two 'villages' and separated on gender lines, they decide everything about how they live - what they do, what they eat, when they get up, whether they clean and wash and how they organise and entertain themselves. Who will cope best without mum and dad? And who will build the better world - boys or girls?
In the first programme, the children arrive in their exciting new surroundings and get to know each other. With comfy beds, and stocks of food, necessities and toys, there's everything they could need to have a fantastic adventure. Conforming to stereotype, while the girls bake cakes, the boys have a gigantic water fight and eat sweets, crisps and chips with cheese. But some of the boys soon start to miss their mums, and they reconsider the benefits of having rules and parents to wash and cook for them. Meanwhile, the girls squabble over sleeping and cooking arrangements and, as they split into factions, some of them feel picked on. Looking on, the parents have to make the difficult decision whether to sit by or step in to put their kids back on track.
In the second programme the children are given money to feed and entertain themselves for three days. While the boys invest in essentials like wrestling belts, the girls stock up on food.
The children are set a new challenge: a two-day camping trip in the great outdoors. They both find it a struggle, while the girls over-pack, the boys decide they need a new leader.
As the project draws to a close the children have faced some struggles and now there's one last challenge: living with the opposite sex. But the idea appeals to some more than others...
Looks like something went completely wrong!
But don't worry - it can happen to the best of us,
