Item Type:Article
Additional Information:This research used three years of data collected from Channel 4's web site interrogating the UK fans of Big Brother in order to present evidence on the audience's understanding of the `reality' in this form of reality television. Using quantitative and qualitative data, Jones investigates how the fans negotiate `personalised reality contracts' with the contributors, a process which is set within the context of the larger debate surrounding the change in status of factual programming. As one of the first articles printed in the area it has been consistently read and cited and builds on her previous work with the BSC for the �Consenting Adults' reports.
