UK residents unwitting stars in ‘Truman’ surveillance shows

13/09/16

A study claims that, if you live in the average UK town, like it or not, you’re on camera pretty much constantly now, like the hapless star of the famous satire of reality TV ‘The Truman Show’

That’s because there are 1.5 times more CCTV cameras in our public spaces than there are in the People’s Republic of China - 5.9m, capturing an image of you up to 70 times every day. Check out the infographic below to see how Big Brother’s watching you. (The research was carried out by surveillance out firm Online Spy Shop.)
