About Face to Face
The program aims to make a Televised Barangay Tanod Hall, a local mini-police station where people take arguments to be heard by Tanods (Peace-keeper Group). It also aims to give TV viewers and the live audience lessons by showing the complainant's problems that the hosts and the Trio-Tagapayo try to solve.
Any citizen in the Philippines who can speak Tagalog can file any complaint about someone which will become the basis for an episode. The production crew go over the records available and choose which cases to present on the show. They will then interview the two parties and provide background about the problem.
During the show, the host, Amy Perez, will talk to the complainant in-person to describe the problem. This is the Puti or white side. The Sawsaweros (male studio audience involver) and the Sawsaweras (Vice-Versa),may ask some questions or make statements, along with the persons originally involved. After a live interview with the complainant, the opponent is brought on stage and forms the Pula, or red side.
Next there is a confrontation, which often results in an argument or even a fight on the stage. As the show progresses, both sides may add another person, to persuade the live audience. Before the guest go on the stage, they undergo security inspection for the safety of both arguing parties. At most key points in the show the host will ask the audience which side they are on, which is answered by the audience by raising signs with the colors for each side. The stage crew is always prepared for a fight and interdicted by two bouncers, designated B1 and B2 while a production crew and the security unit are the backup if more than two people are involved. In most cases the fight scenes are removed from the daytime version of the show, but left in the primetime edition, which is a 60 minute replay. The evening edition is always inspected by the MTRCB before it is broadcast. Paramedics are also available in case of serious injuries.
The Trio Tagapayo (Three Advisers) can also give tips and advice to prevent fights. This group is composed of a lawyer, a psychologist and a priest who give legal, psychological, spiritual advice to the two parties respectively. Occasionally the show invites a guest expert as appropriate to the conflict involved.
The show sometimes ends with statements from the involved parties that they are not yet ready to be friends again or resolve the problem. After giving the final resolution or not, the host pronounces her final thoughts (or Amy-nan) on the issue. The show also conducts a follow-up to confirm if there is progress or not.
