Television is an important part in our lives. Some people prefer spending their free time watching entertainment TV programmes while other viewers prefer educational and political programmes.

People can watch many really exciting programmes: informational, musical, political, educational, sporting, for children and for adults. It’s enough difficult to say what programmes are most interesting. Modern TV offers various programmes on different channels such as: a series, soap opera, quiz show or game show, documentary, chat show, current affairs programme. In addition to last newscasts, viewers can see films and plays, ballets and operas, and all kinds of quizzes, contests, and other events.

The political and informational programmes discuss important events of our state and abroad. Most of people like musical programmes as “MTV”, “New songs about main things”, and others because music helps to win through bad mood or to weather difficult times. Such programmes as “The Millionaire” and “The Dancing with the Stars” are entertaining and enjoyable.

Schoolchildren can learn better biology, zoology, and geography by watching regularly such TV programmes as “The World of Animals”, “The Travellers Club”, “The Animals Planet”, which attract the attention of adult people, too.

An interesting detective story, a good serial or a classical novel can sometimes keep the whole family watching TV for hours and hours.
