I think Planet Earth on BBC is the best. It can makes us know our planet deeper.

where is the text? i found an error here, the text doesn't appear on my browser..

Hello Muhammad Bagir,

The page seems to be working correctly to me. Sometimes the text and exercises are hidden until you click on the + sign in the green bar. If this does not make the text appear then there may be a compatibility issue with your system or browser. Do you have similar problems on other LearnEnglish pages? If so, you could try accessing the page on a different device to see if that helps.


If the problem persists, it may be a geographical issue. Some locations have local regulations which prevent certain content from being seen. Obviously, this is not something we can address.

Dear Ligma, I think that this is not a fake. You can find in the literature a lot of articles related with this topic. The plastic bags and other related product or derived from plastic is a topic that is a global problematic since is a related pollution topic. As this documentary is so interesting, you can also address your thinking in other way, I mean, you can take awareness about the actual global situation and try to avoid the use of plastic. Finally, I would like to recommend this documentary and definitively is a very interesting topic for learning English. :)

I would like to recommend "Super Size Me" documentary film.It shows how fast-food can change our weight easily in a short time if we eat them regularly.We can see clearly the physical and mental side effects that we'll suffer when we are overweight in this.So,I suggest you to watch this film to know how important our diets are.

I love documentaries and i would recommend "A Plastic Ocean" because it´s very important and urgent think about our model of life based in consumerism.

I have enjoyed the reading and I would recommend the Salgado documentary on how he and his family attempted to return to live a very desertic area in Brasil by planting many new trees
