The American Family

Ever wonder who first got the idea to do a reality show, or why? The answer is below:

Subterranean Cinema has this description:

"For seven months, from May 30, 1971, to January 1, 1972,
the family was filmed as they went about their daily routine.
Over 300 hours of film were shot; there is no question the
presence of the camera crews and their equipment had an
effect on the Louds, one which is impossible to evaluate."

There are clips from episodes on Myspace, as well.
