Channel 4 are trying something slightly different next week. They’re punting out a fast-reaction docu series called Seven Days about “some of Notting Hill’s most colourful characters” but they’re setting it up so that viewers can interact with the characters online.

Follow the interwoven lives of some of Notting Hill's most colourful characters, in the documentary series where what you see has only just happened.

And here is a bit more info on the interactive side of the show.
 
Combining not only up to the minute documentary footage that's filmed, edited and on air in just Seven Days the 8 part series includes ground breaking online interactivity at its core.
