Default BBC podcast episode about Big Brother - Unreal: A Critical History of Reality TV

Interviews with some of the ex-housemates from the early series, and talks about some of the famous incidents in the show.

1. The Social Experiment: Big Brother Is Watching You
Unreal: A Critical History of Reality TV

Pandora Sykes and Sirin Kale wind back to Britain's first ‘official’ reality show, to look at how it became a global phenomenon, the importance of authenticity, and how Jade Goody created a new type of celebrity - famous for simply being herself. Featuring interviews with housemates Nick Bateman aka 'Nasty Nick' and Brian Dowling, and Big Brother's Creative Director Philip Edgar-Jones, plus many more.....

Later episodes are about other shows.

God, Brian Dowling will be pissed off at being only referred to as a "housemate".

This series does sound interesting but I'm just not willing to invest an hour an episode.
2009: Just a TV show.
2011: Not even a BB show.

I don’t respect any critic on reality tv who thinks big brother is the start of reality tv. Anyone with a brain knows the real world was pioneering reality tv for 8 years before big brother ripped it off.
