Ways of Talking: Persuading, Explaining, Instructing

This programme presents three ways of talking - persuading, explaining and instructing - using animations, mini documentaries and examples of circus skills.

This programme presents three 'ways of talking', as persuading, explaining and instruction.

Persuading is demonstrated through animations with Judge Jenny's Folk Court where folktale characters try to persuade Judge Jenny to see an incident in the story from their point of view. We meet The Three Bears vs Goldilocks, The Sisters vs Cinderella and The Giants vs Jack (of beanstalk fame).

Explaining is demonstrated through two mini-documentaries dealing with Growing Seeds and Wobbly Teeth.

Instructing is demonstrated through three examples of circus skills in which a performer instructs on balancing and juggling.
