    What Is Big Brother???

    Hi, teachers. I keep hearing native English speakers say: Be careful. Big brother is overhearing.

    What exactly does big brother refer to?? The government(s)?

    I recommend that you read 'Nineteen Eighty Four' a novel by George Orwell. It is a very good book and if you read it you will understand all you need to know about Big Brother.

    And you will also see that the name has very little connection with reality TV, except that it uses movie cameras to spy on people.
