I wouldn't. I'm not a public performer - I didn't let my body let go and progress and really get into my birthing space until everyone had left me alone. And that? Was with people I knew. Put a stranger in the room with me and you're asking for trouble.

I would have no problem with a video camera hidden discreetly in the room somewhere, confident in the knowledge that I could edit as choose before letting anyone see it. But a full on documentary crew? No way no how, will not ever happen.
