Preview – Taxi of Mum and Dad

The Hamid family

Just like the bank of mum and dad, today’s teenagers are taxied around by their parents and the family car is home to a host of strange conversations and passing comments.

To capture this, eight family cars have been rigged with multiple cameras to capture every conversation. The documentary is said to explore the joys and challenges of parenting in the 21st century but is this just another excuse for Channel 4 to highlight idiotic human behaviour? I fear the latter.
