[edit] Information

World of Weird It’s a big world out there – and that’s plenty of space for all kinds of weird and wonderful lifestyles to be practiced across the globe. In a one-hour special titled World of Weird, Channel 4 sent a variety of journalists to investigate the brilliant and the bizarre – everything from Bronies (obsessive adult male fans of My Little Pony), to apocalypse-ready ‘doomsday preppers’ in America, to a man in remote India with 39 wives and 94 children. You can hardly accuse World of Weird of lacking variety. In its opening segment, it follows a Texan couple who have a pet, er, buffalo. He’s called Wild Thing, and he wanders freely around the house, occasionally destroying bits of furniture and his outdoor fences.

Just hire a bunch of actors to be your friends and relatives. Even presenter Matt Rudge has a go, acting as a fake brother for-in-law for client of the agency he visits. From there, it only gets more bizarre - a visit to BronyCon to meet die-hard male My Little Pony fans, including a 26 year-old accountant called David, a trip to a 40-acre secret fortress in the States where people pour their money into preparing for the end of the world, and bull-fighting ‘mini-matadors’. On a slightly more serious note, journalist Billie JD Porter heads to a remote area of India to investigate Ziona – a man with 39 wives and 94 children. The family all live under one roof - a huge purple mansion, where Ziona lives like royalty. His 70th birthday party has military overtones and is described as a “holy celebration like Christmas” by one of the family members,
