    Which is the documentary I liked most?
    I can say that sometimes I find documentaries boring, but I would like to speak about a documentary I have recently seen that represents an exception. It is about alternative forms of energy that have been introduced in the last years. This documentary is very well done also because the presenter is able to attract the attention of listeners. He starts giving a general introduction about different forms of alternative energy available today, then he continues by describing in details two or three forms of different employment of alternative energy. I was particularly attracted by the subject of electric energy and its employment in the automotive field. The description was very detailed in fact it explained the pros and cons of this new form of energy adopted in the engine of a car. A cons for example is the fact that batteries at the moment, once finished their purpose, are not recyclable and this is a big problem.
    To conclude the documentary is very educative and I strongly recommend it to people off all ages. Also the quality of video is very well organized and the photography is extraordinary.

      Very good @lianadeleo. To improve, I suggest you use punctuation, especially commas, e.g. after “Also,…” “In conclusion,……, for example”,….

ONE ADVANTAGE, for example, is the fact that batteries at the moment, once finished their purpose, are not recyclable and this is a big problem.
      To conclude the documentary is very EDUCATIONAL/INFORMATIVE and I strongly recommend it to people off all ages. Also the quality of video is very well organized and the photography is extraordinary.

    “India astonishing”

    Documentaries are a really good way to learn about other countries. Recently I had the opportunity to watxh “India astonishing” which was produced by Kahin Kapoor in 2000.

    It is set in India, and it shows to the viewers how stunningly beatiful is this country. It takes place in the principal cities like; New Delhi and Jaipur. In addition, this documentary provides a lot of information about the Hindu religion, in a explicit and easy way to understand. It was nice surprising that cows are sacred, the same as other animals.
    Last but not least, food and dishes are part of the information provided. That makes us feel visit India as soon as possible.

    However, I was dissapointed that the whole docimentary lasts 40 minutes, which in my point of view, adding more minutes or a second part would be better.

    To sum up, anyone who is adventorous and like to travel will really enjoy this amazing documentary about one of the most beautiful countries of the world.
