Big Brother
Usually referred to as the all-seeing eye and the all-hearing ear of a despotic regime or police state. People often say "Big brother is watching you." in discussions about measures pressed by some authority that threaten the public's privacy.

The name Big Brother comes from a character from George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. He is both the eyes and the voice of the political leader of the totalitarian state in which the main character Winston Smith lives.

It also is the name of a very popular TV show in which people voluntarily locked themselves in a house for a set period of time, allowing viewers to vote who had to stay or leave after some parts of that time, until one person left who would win a large amount of money. The show was called Big Brother because the participants would be filmed 24/7, leaving them no place with privacy, except for the toilets and showers.
