Model Answer: 
We usually do not watch TV programs that we not like and since we have lots of channels to pick from, we change the channel as soon as we find that this is not an interesting program. But sometimes we have to watch the program that other people are watching and we do not have control on the channel changing and thus we often watch programs that we do not like at all, one such program was a talk show that I recently watched. This was a talk show on our national TV channel (…say the name of a TV channel…) and apart from the host, there were two political figures who came from 2 opposite parties. Since this is a famous TV channel, I am sure a good number of people watched it. I watched it at a friend’s house when I was sitting in their drawing room and my friend’s uncle was watching and controlling the TV channels. 

The talk show was about a sensitive national issue and the starting was interesting as the host of the program discussed in details about the program and later on asked some interesting questions to the two guests. After 5 minutes or so, I got an impression that the talk show was a scam and with this programme the Government is trying to give some misleading facts to the viewers. The two guests started attacking each other and showed abominable attitude to each other. That was so surprising that respectable people like them can behave so abhorrently. The program went on and I found that I was completely irritated to see such type of behaviours from our national leaders and the feelings that this was a scam gave me nausea. I left the room before the program ended and walked outside for about 30 minutes. After I returned I found that the program ah ended and that was a kind of relief for me.
