2018-05-05: Task 1 (Australia)
Write a letter to the manager of the television station.
In your letterexplain why you do not like the current programs
describe what kind of programs you would like to see instead
explain why these programs are better
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in regards to the evening programs which are currently being telecast on your TV channel. As per the current schedule of the evening slot, most of the programs are boring and unexciting. It would be great if you can reschedule some of these programs and introduce more exciting and absorbing programs in the evening time.
Most of these programs of the evening slot are in the category of soap opera and the target audiences are mostly adult women. If this slot had more family entertainment programs like comedy, magic show, reality show, children-oriented programs, or documentaries, it would have been more captivating for audiences of all ages. I believe by introducing this variety of programs into the evening slot, your channel can attract more viewers and well as advertisers. Since audiences of a specific age group enjoy your evening programs, you must be missing some advertising opportunities.
Evening time in each family is considered to be the reunion time. Children join their parents after completing a long day in school and in the same way parents also return home after a tiring day in office. So every member of the family prefers being in the living room in the evening as their meeting place and the television is their medium for relaxation and entertainment. Now if your channel can telecast my proposed list of programs, it will cover the interest of everyone in the family.
I hope my request is valid and logical enough to draw your attention. Please reconsider your current evening programmes which are being broadcast.
