Describe An Educational TV Programme That You Have Seen
You should say:
- what the programme is about
- how often you watch this programme
- what type of people enjoy this programme
and explain why this programme is educational.
Television is one of the greatest inventions of mankind. Television is popularly known as “Idiot box” for a cause. Every parent or elderly person chooses not to allow their kid to watch television for more than 2 hours a day. But television does have educational programs streaming in it. Out of the many, Animal planet is one good program. It is mainly on animals and their lifestyle, their eating habit, place of habitat etc.
I used to watch it often when I was a child. Nowadays, I hardly get time to sit and watch television in my hectic daily schedule. So, if I get time to watch tv, I watch it without fail.
There are people who are obsessed with the animal planet. Children who love animals tend to watch this channel. When I was a kid, I was obsessed too. I used to sit every night at around 10pmin front of my television and watch documentaries on Animal Planet. Even my parents liked this channel. Needless to say, they were the ones to introduce me to this channel. Now that I have grown up, the interest has decreased with age. I hardly watch it nowadays.
Animal Planet is primarily engaged in airing series and documentaries about wild animals and domestic pets. They show us how they make their living and especially focuses on Darwin’s “The survival of the fittest” theory. We can learn a great deal from this channel. Thus I am classifying it as an educational programme.
- Invention: creating ability
