The Valleys: MTV defends south Wales reality show
The TV channel behind a new reality show based on the south Wales valleys has defended its portrayal of the area.
MTV's The Valleys, which launches on Tuesday, follows nine young people as they move in together in Cardiff.
Their house features rocking-horse sheep and leeks on the wallpaper, but MTV officials insist that "it's absolutely not about stereotyping".
An online group has been launched to defend the area and singer Charlotte Church called the series "horrific".
BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas reports.
