Is manipulation within the construct of reality television ethical? / Cheryl-Anne Whitlock
Wollongong, NSW: University of Wollongong, 2012.
Call No: 461.25 WHI Author: Cheryl-Anne Whitlock CorpAuthor: University of Wollongong - School of Creative Arts Source: AT Place: Wollongong, NSW Publisher: University of Wollongong PubDate: 2012 PhysDes: xii, 297 leaves ; 30cm Subject: REALITY TV; REALITY TV. AUSTRALIA; BIG BROTHER [TV]; BIG BROTHER [TV] (AT, 2001); BIG BROTHER UNCUT [TV] (AT, 2001-); AUSTRALIAN IDOL [TV] (AT, 2003-) Summary: "The main purpose of the thesis is to determine to what extent duty of care is extended to reality television participants, to what extent elements of reality television programming are manipulated and whether those manipulations are ethical. Program participants are encouraged to be their ‘real’ and authentic selves, yet reality programming itself is often so extensively manipulated that the genre renders its own output inauthentic, thus compromising participants’ contributions and casting their performance in the same false light. Despite this, reality television continues to be promoted and marketed as representative of the real, despite evidence to the contrary and accusations that the generic term is a falsehood. This research employed a methodology combining textual analysis with a mixed method study. Input was sought from scholars and psychologists from the United States of America (US), Australia and the United Kingdom (UK). The research revealed that almost every stakeholder in the genre manipulated other stakeholders in a cannibalistic and parasitic business model. It was found that some manipulations were considered necessary, while others were even deemed ethical when situated in Kantian moral philosophy. Some manipulations were considered blatantly unethical when viewed through the same prism in the context of stakeholders using others to serve their own ends. It was also found that a range of important production processes were not standardised and this lack of standardisation allowed for the use of duplicitous production methods. The research process also uncovered that between 1994 and 2011, 20 former reality television participants reportedly committed suicide following their contribution to a reality program. The psychological effects of participation in this programming has not been measured in any meaningful way and there is a considerable push from consulting psychologists to monitor participants for a year following their filmed participation to study the psychological effects of taking part." -- FROM THESIS ABSTRACT.

Reality TV : Remaking television culture / Susan Murray (ed.) / Laurie Ouellette (ed.)
London: New York University Press, 2004.
Call No: 76:759 REA Author: Susan Murray (ed.); Laurie Ouellette (ed.) Place: New York; London Publisher: New York University Press PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: 23 cm ; 358 p Subject: REALITY SHOWS, TV. AUSTRALIA; DOCUMENTARIES; GAMES SHOWS; PROGRAMME GENRES; OSBOURNES, THE [TV] (US, 2002-); WOMEN AND TV; VIOLENCE ON TV; BIG BROTHER [TV] (AT, 2001) Summary: Beginning by unearthing its historical roots in early reality shows like Candid Camera and wending its way through An American Family, Cops and The Real World to the most recent crop of reality programs, Reality TV is the first book to address the economic, visual, cultural, and audience dimensions of reality television. The essays provide a complex and comprehensive picture of how and why this genre emerged, what it means, how it differs from earlier television programming, and how it engages societies, industries, and individuals. Topics range from the construction of televisual “reality” to the hanging face of criminal violence on TV, to issues of surveillance, taste, and social control. By spanning reality television’s origins in the late 1940s to its current overwhelming popularity, Reality TV demonstrates both the tenacity of the format and its enduring ability to speak to our changing political and social desires and anxieties.

Upping the ante : Survivor and Big Brother and the televisual triumph of the reality game show / Sophie Alexiadis
Call No: 76:759.5 ALE Author: Sophie Alexiadis Place: Melbourne PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: 185 p ; 30 cm Subject: REALITY SHOWS, TV. AUSTRALIA; BIG BROTHER [TV] (AT, 2001); GAMES SHOWS; GAMES SHOWS. AUSTRALIA; PROGRAMME GENRES; AESTHETICS Summary: This thesis conducts a formal analysis of the ways in which phenomenal television successes Survivor and Big Brother are situated in histories of dcumentary, reality television and game shows; and how they may indicate a broader change in television production aesthetics and viewing practices for the new millenium. Historically, the reality game shows Survivor and Big Brother can be seen as belonging to and perpetuating a form which commenced with the first television broadcasts: the game show genre. Yet, with hybridized formats incorporating elements of news, soap opera, talk shows or fly-on-the-wall documentaries, these recent shows exploit the latest television technology. How shows such as Survivor and Big Brother expand or subvert the game show genre is, therefore, central to this thesis. [Taken from thesis summary]. Notes: RMIT masters thesis More info

While scholars have researched audience responses to a wide range of reality shows, little research has been conducted on the participants themselves. My qualitative research study involving 15 semi-structed one-on-one interviews with reality TV participants addresses this gap, using these accounts to explore broader issues surrounding late modern identity and subjectivity" -- ABSTRACT Notes: Typescript; Thesis (Ph.D.)--University of Melbourne, School of Culture and Communication, 2011; Includes bibliographical references Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction -- chapter one: reality tv and our collective selves: a history and review of the literature -- chapter two: qualitative research and reflexivity: interviewing through an ethnographic gaze -- chapter three: 'there's no reality in reality tv': performing the real in a 'reality flavoured' universe -- chapter four: what about me? reality tv and the self-governed citizen -- chapter five: brand new world: reality tv and the branded human -- chapter six: reality is a bitch: expectations and disappointments in reality tv -- chapter seven: hijacking the branded self: reality tv and the politics of subversion -- conclusion -- appendix 1: the interviewees -- appendix 2: interview questions -- bibliography -- More info
