‘The media’ is a catch-all term often blamed for the high beauty standards to which we hold women accountable, so what do two telly execs have to say on the subject? Plenty, as it happens.
In this episode of Body Cons we speak with Rosie Bray and Lucy Golding, the two execs behind Barefaced TV, which made Channel 4’s Naked Beach. We get into it on the subject of representation, diversity, the processes behind Naked Beach and what sparked the pair’s idea for the show in the first place.
It’s a fascinating listen if you want a behind-the-scenes insight into some of the conversations that happen in the world of TV – and how we, as an audience, have just as much a part to play in future change as those in the boardrooms.
