The general aim of the following study is an analysis of relationship between the pattern and the final text. More concretely we focus on factual television genres, where it comes into the form of relationship between TV format and television programme. While analyzing this relationship, we focus on the British TV format Farmer Wants a Wife and on its two very different adaptations, one from Czech Republic and the other one from Slovakia. In this paper we want to highlight the broad spectrum of problems associated with adaptation of factual television programmes primarily through the comparative analysis based on the modified concepts of Nick Lacey and Ib Bondebjerg.
