Big Brother is a reality television series broadcast on Channel 4, and S4C in Wales, in which a number of contestants live in isolation from the outside world in a custom built house trying to avoid being evicted by the public with the aim of winning a large cash prize at the end of the run. It is based on the Big Brother series produced by Brighter Pictures, a part of Endemol. The show’s name comes from George Orwell’s 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, a dystopia in which Big Brother is the all-seeing omnipotent leader of Oceania. The main shows are hosted by Davina McCall and narrated by Marcus Bentley.
