head of reality TV at BBC says reality TV is “not something I really feel exists.”
Conrad Green—who helped make both Big Brother and Popstars hits in the UK—was recently appointed head of factual entertainment at the BBC. For all intents and purposes, that department is in charge of reality TV programming, but Green tells The Guardian that the term “reality TV” is “a phrase I don’t really understand because it’s rather lazily applied to tons of different formats that actually existed a long time ago,” and says “[i]t’s not something I really feel exists.”
