Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A satire of the British TV "docu-soap" format (as exemplified by the films of Michael Apted and other "actuality" specialists), A Set of Six was the brainchild of writer/performer Rowland Rivron. Narrated in the best dead-on fashion by Tony Bilbow, this was the cinéma vérité saga of the Scrotes, a family of grown-up sextuplets. Rowland Rivron not only played the kids' father, but was also seen as all six siblings. A co-production of Britain's Channel Four and Channel X, A Set of Six ran for six half-hour episodes, which aired from June 12 to July 17, 1990.
