BIG BROTHER -Is a fictional character in George Orwell's novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four", the enigmatic dictator of Oceania, a totalitarian state taken to its utmost logical consequence. In the society that Orwell describes, everybody is under complete surveillance by the authorities, mainly by TV screens. The people are constantly reminded of this by the phrase "Big Brother is watching you".
These days people are more likely to think of the reality TV series that puts a group of strangers in a house for 3months and films it all while the public vote for who to evict.
