"Bailey Kipper's P.O.V." was a US children's television series that aired in 1996 on CBS Saturday Mornings, starring Michael Galeota, John Achorn, Meg Wittner. It lasted for only 13 episodes of 30 mins length each. At one time this show had a slot on the BBC's CBBC program which was on Fri mostly at 4.15pm. For a while, it aired on Nickelodeon UK. The show has not yet been released on VHS or DVD.

Plot

Bailey Kipper's young age, 11, is belied by his wit and sophistication. His father works at a local TV station and often brings home junked bits of technical equipment for his son to mess around with, for Bailey is an electronics wizard. He constructs an elaborate spy system with which, via miniature cameras he has concealed all over the house and in his family's clothing (and even in the dog's collar), he can record the family's daily activity, creating a video diary of their lives. His viewing area is hidden away in a part of the house he has made inaccessible to the others. Each episode presented the results of Bailey's handiwork as he re-ran recent events in the lives of the Kipper family - mom, dad, little brother Eric and older sister Robin.

Ahead of its time

"Bailey Kipper's P.O.V." was ahead of its time. A year later, two major Hollywood films ("The Truman Show" and "EDtv") explored similar themes, and these were followed by the plethora of "Big Brother"-type TV shows. Bailey Kipper, of course, was only a children's comedy, yet it had some smart ideas and an ironic edge that gave it broader appeal. The family's antics were sometimes enhanced by Bailey's wild imagination, and at other times by his electronic manipulation of the images. Peppered with clips from old movies and TV shows (a la Dream On) and spliced up with animation and special effects, the show could have been too rich for its own good, but actually it held together very well, with good performances from the precocious youngsters and fine support from the adults. The family set-up was more realistic than in most US children's sitcoms - Mom earned little as a state nurse, and shortage of money was a recurring problem - and the relationships were similar to those in the later smash hit "Malcolm In The Middle". It also worked for a future Nickelodeon series, "iCarly".

It was also among the first generation of CBS programs to meet the federal E/I mandates.

Additionally, this was the first show to be entirely edited on a Macintosh computer.
