The show tonight unfortunately proves it's a fake and a reenactment.
The episode was about a sommelier who had wine sales drop during the year he had working at the restaurant. I was watching the camera angles and when they cut to a scene of him pouring wine for a couple the camera angle would have put the camera at chest level in the wall behind the table. They cut to a long shot and there was nothing on the wall except paint. In another scene the camera shot showed the subject walking past the "hidden" camera which was at eye level less than 3 feet from him and only a little smaller than his head. The camera was attached to a post on the top of a divider wall. Hard to miss something that big that's swiveling around, especially when you've worked there a year. Impossible.
I watched another episode about a pub. During the set up summary they claimed they had 3 cameras installed and showed the locations. They also were supposed to have one of their undercover operatives wearing a camera mounted in her eyeglass frames. I counted 10 completely different camera angles during the alleged operation while I was watching the playback on my DVR. They also had a close up shot of the woman wearing the glasses. Unless they managed to come up with a camera with no lens that's less than a millimeter thick there wasn't a camera on the frames.
Too bad, I liked the concept. I wish they had a real show like this.
