Preliminary study 2: Familiarity

In the second preliminary study of SIRUP we tried to identify indicators that predict the perceived familiarity of a television program. During this project we work with broadcasting data from BBC’s ViSTA-TV project. Based on the available data from this project and external public sources, we identified five possible indicators for familiarity (see Figure 1):

  • Number of BBC viewers
  • Number of Google results
  • Number of Facebook likes
  • Number of Twitter references
  • IMDB user ratings
