Re-do Question 4 -

Does the programme 'Inform, Educate and Entertain' its audience? (12 marks)

In my opinion, the programme does 'Inform, Educate and Entertain.'
The show informs us as is shows and allows us to see what it's like in the Antarctic, we see this through surveillance links. Frozen Planet educates us as not only does it talk about what life is like on the other side of the world and how penguins live but the voice over is done by the very well known David Attenborough. He add education as he is very well known and highly respected. He narrates some of the best and most educating natural history programmes. Frozen Planet is also entertaining as it is humorous. Although what the show is about is very serious and is informing us about animals and life elsewhere, the behind the scenes footage has allowed us to see that a lot of the time, the camera crew are enjoying themselves.
I believe that this programme appeals to mainstreamers. This being because it was one of the most watched natural history series in the UK, and attracted over seven million viewers. The time slot is also very mainstream as it is shown on at 9pm on a Wednesday night. This is the time where everyone would normally be at home watching TV. In this clip we also see equilibriums. We first witness a crew member going out of his way and in to danger to try his best to get the "perfect shot," this is a disequilibrium. Towards the end of the clip we finally see that he was able to get the shot he wanted, this is the new equilibrium.
