A fly-on-the-wall documentary

In a fly-on-the-wall documentary, the programme makers film a real-life situation, for example a family at home, for 24-hours a day. They film them talking, eating, watching TV and doing everyday things. Then they cut the film down to 30 minutes or an hour for the documentary. They try to give a true picture of real life.

A talent show

In a talent show, members of the public go on the programme to sing or dance. People telephone the programme to vote for their favourite person. Every week, the person with the least votes leaves the programme. At the end of the series, there’s a winner.

A historic drama

A historic drama series is normally based on a classic book. It is set in the past and the characters wear the clothes of a past time. The stories are often about families, friendship and marriage. Some of the most popular British TV dramas are from the books of Jane Austen, such as Pride and Prejudice.

Global family size

The size of an average family is very different around the world. In countries where most families have one or two children, the population (the number of people in the country) gets smaller. In countries where there are three or more children in most families, the population grows. Where an average family has two children, the population size stays the same.

Populations getting smaller

In the UK the average number of children per family is 1.8. In most European countries, families have only one or two children.

Populations staying the same

In the US, Brazil and New Zealand, the average number of children is about two.

Populations growing

In many countries in Africa, it is common for families to have four, five, six or even seven children.
