A Comparison of the Opening Few Minutes of We’ve Got the Builders In and Brat Camp

Both programmes have different audiences and therefore the director,

“We’ve got the builders in” is targeting at a male audience, who most
likely, too are having the builders in and are interested in what will
happen and how builders and the situation should be dealt with.
Although many DIY programmes are directed at women, due to the fact
that this has the word builder in and men usually deal with the
builders and it is a male orientated employment, it is clear from the

Todorov ideas of narrative are clearly noticeable in “We’ve got the
builders in.” The equilibrium is seen from the opening credits as we
see a high shot of a city landscape, which demonstrates normality. It
then cuts to showing various people and couples talking of their plans
to develop their homes or property. The disruption comes when the
builders move in and the general problems that come with them. For

parents of the children who have watched their children gradually
separate away from them. This is demonstrated when the child pleads
for forgiveness, which is emotional blackmail, something parents can

also aids the narrative as it gives firstly a sense of time and to
show the disruption, in the example of “Brat Camp” the change in their
personality and behaviour which is to be straightened out.

The start of the programme shows all the children in their normal
lives which allows the teenage audience to associate with all or one,
which most befits their character.

The teenagers in the program are represented very stereotypically. In
the first scenes, when they are shown in their normal lives they are
shown as rebels to society or ‘different’. Many are either ‘chavs’ or
‘grungers’, which teenagers can relate to....
