Inside Out BBC One
The Ministry Of Common Sense; is about brutal truth packaged in Common Sense.
It's a bit like electric shock treatment, short and sharp, a wake up call.
The philosophy is always positive even though it can be seen as negative by some. Facing one's truth begins with facing one's fears and taking responsibility for your life and your contribution. Easier said than done of course.
The presenters and teachers, who offer their free life coaching service to anyone brave enough to make eye contact, smile and confess their foibles on camera, ask the question SPOOF or REALITY?
Original, forward thinking and totally out of the box this six year reality journey from Hollywood to Leicester hits the UK through television.
Expect the unexpected in this mental, makeover show.
