Candid Camera is a hidden camera/practical joke reality television series created
and produced by Allen Funt (above), a former advertising artist who conceived the
show that caught people in the act of being themselves. The show initially began
on radio as The Candid Microphone on June 28, 1947. After a series of theatrical
film shorts, also titled Candid Microphone, Funt’s concept came to television, initially 
on ABC, and aired over other networks until the final broadcast on May 5, 2004.
