  1. 1. Reality TV
  2. 2. Reality TV <ul><li>Try and come up with a short and concise definition of what reality television means. </li></ul><ul><li>List as many reality TV shows as you can.

  3. 3. Pick your favourite reality TV show and answer the below question. <ul><li>Genre – what sort of show is it? </li></ul><ul><li>This isn’t as simple as you might think.

TV-generated reality TV shows (such as Temptation Island, Survivor, Shipwrecked, Big Brother and The Real World). These are shows which want to make money! </li></ul><ul><li>3. Shows that blend the two (such as Blind Date and Singled Out). </li></ul>
