Thanks to DavidK for more information. Big Brother is a reality show and a major character in Orwell's novel 1984 about an oppressive government. The reality show is based on constant surveillance, a theme from 1984 ("Big Brother is watching you" is a famous phrase). Here is an excerpt from page 1: The flat was seven flights up, and Winston, who was thirty-nine and had a varicose ulcer above his right ankle, went slowly, resting several times on the way. On each landing, opposite the lift-shaft, the poster with the enormous face gazed from the wall. It was one of those pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption beneath it ran. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Brother_(Nineteen_Eighty-Four)
