People watch documentaries to be:

  •  educated or informed about the situation
  • to socially interact with others about the documentary
  •  to escape from their daily live’ s.
  • in order to identify with the characters and their situations
  • and sometimes to be entertained ( depends what the documentary is about)

These reason are all Blumler and katz theory, the 5 reasons why audiences consume media texts. This is why people watch documentaries. For example i watch ‘ count down to murder’. To be educated about how they solve certain mysteries and how long it look them. Also i could escape from my daily routine and i could socially interact with others the next day.

pleasures for viewers are that you can learn new facts, to be interested and also you can relate to them in a certain way.
