TV’s got talent

In the UK, Saturday evening has always been a popular time for families to watch television together and one of the most popular programme genres is the talent show, partly because of their broad age appeal and also because of their interactivity. Even early shows, like Opportunity Knocks (1956-1978), required viewers to vote for their favourite act, be it a singer, dancer, comedian ormusician, and viewers obliged in their thousands – although in those days voting was done by postcard rather than by telephone, text or the internet. 

Today, the success of television talent shows has reached a whole new level and their scope has broadened too, from competitions to become a top model to cookery, singing, dancing and ice skating.

The UK’s top three TV talent shows: 
The X Factor – This glitzy singing competition seescontestants in front of a celebrity judging panel before facing the public vote. The show is now made all over the world, from China to Colombia.

Strictly Come Dancing – Celebrities team up with professional dancers and take to the dance floor to win the title of Strictly Come Dancing Champion.

Britain’s Got Talent – In this modern-day version of Opportunity Knocks, the viewing public can choose from a variety of acts, from dancing dogs to gymnastics. The prize is to perform for Her Majesty the Queen in the Royal Variety Performance.
