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.
