Lagos Slum Mechanic Trains and Mentors 3 UK Teens For BBC Reality TV Show

Posted in: , , , ,

The UK's BBC3 has a new reality TV show titled Slum Survivors, which features young jobseekers who can't find work in the UK, and then the show gets them apprenticeships abroad.

The series kicks off in Lagos, which according to the BBC is a city obsessed with cars, and so the episode set in Lagos features British teens who want to be mechanics.

See photos of the reality show participants below as they fetch water, eat local delicacies, and do the local punishment, 'pick pin'. There's also a video trailer of the complete series.

For those who weren't happy with the other BBC show set in a Lagos slum, this is not a good idea. What do you think?
