Why reality TV needs to pass the four-second test

“Twenty years ago everyone thought reality TV was a flash in the pan, but it’s become a fixed item on traditional TV channels and on-demand services like Netflix who’ve recently had huge success with Too Hot To Handle,” said Rick Murray, managing director, Manchester-based Workerbee, which makes new Channel 4’s reality show, The Bridge, based on a Spanish format.

There will be a mix of special programmes and a look back at some classic moments from Eurovision.

Famous faces Graham Norton, Ken Bruce and Rylan Clark-Neal will help bring the Eurovision spirt into viewers homes. 

Graham Norton described Eurovision as a form of “escapism” for people especially during these times.

He added: “This year people at home can celebrate the amazing spirit of the event and hopefully get the chance to take their mind off the current situation for a few hours.”

The studio entertainment series gives sellers and inventors the opportunity to showcase their innovations and sell them to an audience of real shoppers.

Sellers have only 90 seconds to showcase their products and impress an audience of 100 potential customers, who then vote if they like the product or not.
