I would recommend a documentary about Chinese food, its name is 'a bite of China'. It presents a wide variety of unique vegetables, cuisines, cooking skills and cultures around China. It is a good way to learn about authentic Chinese food and related culture.

My favorite decumentary film about porsche car's factory. The factory located in Germany and the film tells how one of the most luxury cars in the world is made. Also it mentione why this vehicle consider one of the best cars in the world and It tells a bout the unique design of the vehicle and why porsche engineers choose to install the car's engine in the back moreover the reason of chosen flat type engine and the film provide more technical information about the type of brake system, air dynamic of the body, the hight of the car and the sophisticated system of the vehicle. I recommend to watch this film specially the car's fans and automobile engineers.

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. :)
