Life... in front of the television

The national conversation takes place under the watchful glow of our flat screens, and Gogglebox is there to capture it. Each week, this show presents the highlights of the week’s television, intercut with footage of ordinary people watching it at home. Featuring a cross section of society, it’s funny, poignant, controversial and current – provoking conversation around the world about what is on the screen, and what’s happening in our viewers’ lives.
