AN UNUSUAL Israeli reality TV series began its fifth season on Channel 10 on May 28. “‘Baby Boom,’” according to Jerusalem Post reporter Amy Spiro, is about “one of the most intimate moments of [young couples’] lives. There is crying, screaming and yelling, as well as sweat, tears and emotion… on every face in the room. It’s a hospital delivery room….” I doubt there is anything like it on foreign television.

Hundreds of thousands of Israelis watch the program.
