Essay On Big Brother

Extracts from this document...


GCSE Media work Big Brother- one of the most popular reality TV shows has created a lot of commotion over the last few weeks. Why? You may ask, but by now everybody knows. It has reached the 10 o clock news here in Britain, in India and everywhere else. For what started as childish behaviour accelerated to bullying, this then led to allegations of racism.
