  Post 3- What is the purpose of a documentary? What is a documentary? A documentary is a television programme, film or a radio programme that provides a factual report on a certain subject to present to the particular target audience. Documentaries are often made because they may feel that particular subject is not being addressed enough in the media or on television. There are many different purposes of the construction of a documentary. For example, they include to entertain, to inform and to educate an audience.   Purpose of a documentary? To inform- inform the audience about the issues all around the world. To re-tell a story To observe To educate- educates the audience on certain issues that are happening in our society To persuade  –  change the opinion of the audience on the documentary topic To entertain  –  provide knowledge and entertain for the audience To raise awareness To investigate- to looks closer into the topic for the audience to watch Factual  –  give statistics and the documentary is based on facts. To explore different styles and themes To state fact, not fiction To give an opinion- can be biased and to explore the opposing arguments and the views of the presenter  I would like my documentary to entertain my target audience as this is the most popular purpose of documentaries. Also by having a documentary that entertains, it engages the audience to stay focused on the programme and means they will not lose interest in my documentary. The narrative style will be a non-linear narrative as we will be free to deliver our message by not following an ordered structure. We will also follow the multi strand rule as we don’t have to only follow one narrative.
