    Abstract

    This dissertation will be an exploration of how audiences relate to reality television and whether the programmes help to create the formation of a cultural and individual identity. The main focus of the project will be an assessment of if reality television is an essential part of modern culture due to its relationship to the development of the self. In order to achieve these objectives a case study approach will be taken where by the specific focus will be on participant's responses to questions after viewing the reality show "Wife Swap". The results will then be put into perspective of wider reading of other studies and theories surrounding identity.
