'Big Brother' watches over Dutch birth

  1. A woman taking part in the Dutch edition of the Big Brother reality television show has given birth to a baby girl in the studio.
    Okay weird enough but this bit is something else

    But in September, the Dutch Work Ministry ruled that if born in the house, the baby could not be filmed 24/7 as this would constitute child labour.
    Jocelyn Savanna will therefore be filmed for a maximum of two hours per day for eight days.
    She will then be guaranteed privacy in a separate room with her grandmother and unlimited off-screen access for her mother.

    I can't work out if this is a good thing or beaurocracy gone mad?

    I think this is truly bizarre and over-the-top.

    Well, you know this woman planned to give birth while on this show. It just speaks volumes about the stupidity of others and the unfortunate realization that an innocent child is part of this stupidity.
