In small groups
Plan a reality TV or talent show. Work out the idea (such as a celebrity juggling contest in the jungle or a tap dancing competition in the desert!)
- What will the contestants have to do?
- How will the audience or judges eliminate contestants?
- What will the format be for each episode or show? For example a narrated summary of the week's challenges, the contest, voting, elimination, tears and goodbye of the eliminated contestant, hints and suspense about next week's challenges to keep the viewers watching next week.
- How are you going to engage and involve your audience? Could you use different media like internet and mobile phones?
Pitch your programme idea to the rest of the class (who are the TV station executives)
The station can only afford one new TV show this season. Which one will you choose?
