New show takes us all over Earth (P4-5)
浙江省金华市外国语学校   翁冰玫
 
I. Pre-reading 
1)Some information about David Attenborough.
Sir David Frederick Attenborough (born 8 May 1926) is an English broadcaster and naturalist. He is best known for writing and presenting the nine Life series, which show animal and plant life all over our planet.
Attenborough is the only person to have won BAFTAs (英国电影学院奖) for programs in each of black and white, color, HD, and 3D. He is widely considered a national treasure in Britain. In 2002 he was named among the 100 Greatest Britons following a vote all over the UK.
 
2)Some information about Planet Earth II.
Planet Earth II comes a decade after the original Planet Earth. The new series began with Sir David, now 90, floating above the Alps in a hot air balloon. He has also narrated the six episodes of the series. 
More than 9 million people watched the first episode on Nov 6.
The Daily Telegraph TV critic Gerard O’Donovan said Planet Earth II had set“yet another quality benchmark(基准)".
He wrote: “…Planet Earth II has surpassed the previous series - it was one of the most stunningly vivid and engaging natural history films I've ever seen."
 
 
II. While reading
1. Pre-reading discussion
What can you learn about the new show from Gerard O’Donovan’s comments on it?
The new show is of high quality.
It’s second to none among all natural history films.
It’s well worth watching.
It’s a feast for the viewers’ eyes.
 
Which part of the article conveys a similar meaning?
The first paragraph.  If you only have time to watch one television series in the whole of 2016, “you have to make it Planet Earth II”.
 
2. Read through the article and answer this question: Which opinions do the following examples support?
 
 
3. Read the article again and answer the question: What do you think caused the differences between the 2006 Planet Earth and the 2016 Planet Earth II?
The development of technology
The changes in the planet itself
 
4. Paraphrase the following sentences
1) “Let’s get ourselves into the lives of the animals, and see it through their eyes.”
Get close to animals, experience what they experience and tell their stories.
2) When an animal fights its enemy, “don’t expect this to be a completely sunny look at nature. The darker side is in there.”
In the world of animals, there is fierce competition, fighting and even death, as well as peace and love.
3) “… the planet itself has changed in those 10 years, too; never has it been more fragile and precious.”
Developments in technology and the economy have brought about progress in human society. Meanwhile, it has caused damage and even natural disasters. The planet has been badly hurt, and it is therefore becoming particularly precious.
 
III. Post reading
Share your opinion about the following question:
It took 42 cameramen 2089 days to finish filming Planet Earth II. Its director and narrator, David Attenborough, is 90 years old this year. If you were him, would you find it worthwhile to take part? Why/why not?
