‘Far from the line’ is a very popular TV show in our country among more than 20 million viewers who enjoy this show a lot. In a recent online poll, this TV programme was selected as the second most popular TV show of all time in our country.
This is an investigative news story programme that deals with the crime and unlawful activities in our society as well as important events in history. Some of the episodes deal with the details and facts on notorious events of history. Other episodes introduce unjust and crimes happening around us. It also alerts us about the types of crimes common in our country and notifies us about the corruptions. Sometimes, this programme interviews famous lawyers, politicians, law-enforcing members, witnesses and victims to give more details about a crime. Finally, some episodes present the backgrounds of a murder or a heinous crime that got media attentions. Thus the topic of this programme has a great variety but the objective remains the same- aware people. To unveil a crime and to aware people is the main reason this programme is aired and this is a successful TV programme so far.
I like the way this programme is presented and the news presenters, anchors and investigators are quite brilliant and the composition of different events in this programme is actually remarkable. I like the idea of informing people about law, crime, criminals and the social unjust. In my opinion, this programme is quite helpful to inform citizens about the type of crimes they should be more cautious about. It also explains the basic laws, civil rights and how to inform authority in case anyone has information about a probable crime or unjust. The way this programme is presented and the variations and exciting facts the programme makers can bring in each new episode is really praiseworthy and the main reason for its popularity. People in my country love programmes that educate people and are entertaining at the same time. The programme ‘Far from the line’ is a perfect blend of important news, messages, excitement and entertainment and this, in my opinion, is the mantra of its popularity.
