Foundation 33’s ‘hidden eye’ identity for Channel 4’s Big Brother is not as inspired as you may or may not think.

The Orwellian eye obscured by horizontal lines is allegedly a favourite of the film community and was cleverly spotted by Seven Communications’ principal Steve Bower, in a 1991 manual on film directing by Steven D Katz. Katz used a similar eye illustration in his book Shot by Shot.

Both images are hard to see up close, a bit like the show.
