Do you have a favourite factual or lifestyle programme? The task this time is to write a post about one such programme. Factual and lifestyle programmes both entertain and enlighten us and can be amongst the best programmes on television.
Over the years I’ve had lots of favourites, programmes that I try to catch each time they’re on. I loved the Cosmos series with Neil deGrasse Tyson which taught us how the Earth and the universe evolved. I never missed Wonders Of The Solar System and Wonders Of The Universe with Professor Brian Cox (from Manchester University, my home town) which took its audience on a beautiful journey of discovery, backed with solid science. Both of these presenters are particular heroes of mine. Currently, I enjoy George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces which shows how you can create life-changing buildings in small, unique and creative ways. I’m also following Walking Through History with Sir Tony Robinson and Big Dreams Small Spaces, a creative gardening programme with the amazing Monty Don. As well as being factual, many of these programmes are very entertaining which is why they’re an effective way of delivering educational information.
Your task is to write about a factual programme or documentary that you enjoy. Tell us what it is, what the programme is about, why you like it, perhaps even who in your family enjoys watching it. Is it more education or entertainment? Is the programme a particular interest of yours or a member of your family? Remember to introduce it properly (like we’ve been learning in class) and use paragraphs for the different parts of your post.
