    Series 1-6 of Big Brother (2000-2005), including the four series of Celebrity Big Brother in between, were some of the very few programs on mainstream British terrestrial television that were broadcast in the old 4:3 aspect ratio as opposed to the more common 16:9 wide-screen format. (Except the Big Brother Panto, which was in wide-screen). The reason for this is unclear, but was believed to be because of the size of some of the hidden cameras. However, from Big Brother 7 (2006) the aspect ratio has been switched in favor of the 16:9 format, with Big Brother, and all of its sister shows, broadcasting in wide-screen.

    Series 7 was the first series to allow a random member of the public to enter the house. 100 golden tickets were placed in Kit-Kat chocolate bars, granting the finder a chance to enter the Big Brother house. Of those tickets, 58 were found before the deadline, but two people decided not to put themselves forward for the show, three dropped out, and 19 did not pass the required background checks, leaving a total of 34. The competition began at 10:30pm on May 18, 2006, the launch date of Big Brother. Susie Verrico became the "Golden Housemate" after being randomly selected in a Bingo style machine, as each ticket-holder were randomly given numbers to wear as hats and armbands on the day.
