Gogglebox is a British television reality show that premiered on Channel 4 on 7 March 2013. The programme features a number of families and groups of friends from different places around the United Kingdom who react to television programmes from their own homes. Gogglebox was narrated from its launch on 7 March 2013 until 8 April 2016 by Caroline Aherne. She was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2014, which led to her death on 2 July 2016. Craig Cash regularly filled in for Aherne when she was unavailable and took over the role as narrator permanently on 15 April 2016. The show won a BAFTA award in 2014[3] and a National Television Award in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.

A version of the show featuring children, titled Gogglesprogs, launched as a Christmas special on Christmas Day 2015, and was followed by a full-length series which began airing on 17 June 2016.[4] In 2017, a spin-off show titled Vlogglebox aired on E4, which featured reactions from 16 to 24-year-olds as they watch online content on their smartphones, laptops or tablets.[5] In 2019, it was announced that a celebrity version had been ordered; Celebrity Gogglebox began airing in 2019, and it was later renewed for a second series which aired in 2020. In December 2020, it was confirmed that Series 17 would begin airing in February 2021,[6] and on 11 February, the air date was confirmed to be 26 February 2021.[7]

Production

The programme is a production of Studio Lambert, a company run by British media executive Stephen Lambert, who was behind other Channel 4 programmes such as Faking It, Wife Swap, Undercover Boss and The Secret Millionaire. Director of Factual Entertainment for Studio Lambert Tania Alexander, the executive producer and person responsible for the TV series from 2013 to 2020, said the original idea was for the programme to be a "mix of Harry Hill and The Royle Family" but with real people.[8]

The Creative Director for Studio Lambert Tim Harcourt had the original idea for the programme while watching the London riots,[9][10] and along with Alexander devised the format for the show. They wondered what people were talking about while watching the news and came up with the idea of cutting between people watching the same TV programmes.[11][12]

Farah Ramzan Golant, the boss of All3Media, said: "Everyone loves watching TV and talking about TV. But the show isn't really about TV. The show is about people's lives, their relationships, their living rooms and the way children and parents talk about TV. It's near real-time because you're watching what happened in the seven days before. That's quite priceless. It captures a cultural response to something that's happening in the world. Gogglebox shows TV in people's living rooms is alive and well and thriving. It is asserting the indispensable role of TV in the fabric of people's lives."[2]

On 26 November 2020, it was announced by Studio Lambert that Alexander would be leaving to take on fresh challenges, after 7 years as Executive Producer of the show. Mike Cotton, Studio Lambert’s deputy creative director would oversee the series for the foreseeable future, along with Gogglebox executive producer Leon Campbell.

Filming

The programme is filmed in the viewers' homes, by two small HD remote-control cameras[13] known as "hot heads", operated by a small team elsewhere in the home that have set up a temporary production control room; the team consists of a producer/director, gallery operator, assistant, audio engineer, researcher (for live logging) and a runner.[14]
