We watch hours of television every day – the TV set is the focal point of our home; it’s where we eat, chat, break up, make up, chill out or freak out. ‘The national conversation’ takes place under the watchful glow of our flat screens, and now ‘Gogglebox’ is here to capture it.

Each week ‘Gogglebox’ presents the highlights of the week’s television, intercut with footage of ordinary people watching it at home. Featuring a cross-section of society – the working class family, a student household, a gay couple, elderly grandparents and their grandchildren – we see not only their diverse reactions to the week’s biggest soap storyline or high-end drama, but also to the country’s sporting events and unfolding big news stories. The show features these same characters every week.

‘Gogglebox’ is funny, poignant, controversial and current. ‘Gogglebox’ goes beyond a TV review show, provoking conversation not only about what’s on the screen but also what’s happening in our viewers’ lives.


"It's hypnotic and addictive television, like three-dimensional Twitter." Ben Preston, editor of Radio Times
