Describe an educational television programme that you liked.
You should say
– what the programme was about
– when and where you saw it
– how you found out about this programme
– and why you liked it
I’m going to talk about one of my favourite educational TV programmes, which is a nature documentary called ‘Planet Earth’. There were eleven episodes of this programme, and each one featured a different habitat on Earth, such as mountains, caves, deserts and jungles. The aim of the ‘Planet Earth’ series was to take the viewer into those habitats, using spectacular footage of interesting animals, plants and landscapes.
首句定语从句可谓先声夺人。高分词汇(其实都是简单词汇)：episode, feature, habitat, take..into, spectacular footage, landscapes. 三句话分别讲了这个节目的基本信息，主要内容形式和节目的宗旨，可以说完美地回答了what the programme was about.
I first saw ‘Planet Earth’ on television when it was broadcast by the BBC several years ago. I think it was shown every Sunday evening, which was the perfect time to watch a fascinating nature programme. Then, a few years a ago, somebody bought me the DVD box set of the whole series as a Christmas present, and I watched the episodes again.
I found out about this TV programme because it was advertised repeatedly in the weeks before it was first aired. The TV trailers were really eye-catching because they showed incredibly beautiful images of nature. I also recognised the voice of the narrator of the programme, the well-known naturalist David Attenborough. It was these trailers that persuaded me to watch the first episode.
found out about一定要注意是“找到，搞清楚”意思，不是让你评价这个节目（how do you think of…）。如果说前2段还只是小试牛刀，那么这一段开始，就是火力全开，开始了9分英语的狂飙了。4句话全部为复杂句，分别涉及到了because状语从句，because状语从句，同位语，强调句（it is…that…）。当然，学术口语中，原本就应该达到这用程度地表达。而细看词汇，当然也不简单，有air, narrator, naturalist, trailer等。不过整体而言，用词很简明，没有任何炫技的成分。
What I liked most about the ‘Planet Earth’ series was its stunning photography and its global scope. For example, in the “Fresh Water” episode, they showed us the giant salamander in Japan, crocodiles in the river Nile, and river dolphins in the Amazon. I was amazed at how they had managed to film such interesting creatures in so many locations. I enjoyed learning about strange animal species, and the programme opened my eyes to the hidden wonders of our planet.
此段，旨在让回答有血有肉，所以用了详略恰当的例子来说明了why you liked it. 结尾的表达简明有力，让人折服。高分词汇：stunning photography, global scope, opened my eyes, hidden wonders.
