Describe a TV or radio programme that you sometimes talk about with your family or friends

You should say: What the programme is about/what the programme is How often you watch or listen to this programme What type of people enjoy this programme And explain what you like or dislike about this programme

I’d like to talk about one of my favourite radio programmes I’m used to listening to. The best example when I cross my mind is BBC radio 4 that is a radio station owned and operated by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) that broadcasts a wide variety of spoken-word programmes including news, drama, comedy, science and history.

Speaking of the frequency of when I listen to BBC channel 4, I should say it’s almost everyday. When I enjoy my breakfast each morning, meanwhile it’s the best chance to grasp global events from this channel. it’s the same that when I go to bed, I also prefer to focus on the programme for a while before I fall asleep tightly. It seems that BBC radio 4 has completely immersed into my life and has already become one part of my daily routine.

When it comes to who fancies this kind of programme, honestly, I have no clue about it in China. In the UK it’s the second most popular domestic radio station, but as I know, Chinese people who really fancy International news and events are presumably obsessed with BBC radio 4 because it's more opening and globish compared with mass media in China.

My final point is that what impresses me most from BBC radio 4 is a spectacular programme called Woman’s hour which is in fact a powerful advocate for women’s empowerment. The programme maintains links with Women's Aid and Women’s Right as well as promoting many campaigns of feminism. This is just what developing countries like China urgently need to work on.
