City boy Piers retells the story of how he went from successful London banker to being incarcerated in a Nepalese prison after being found guilty of smuggling gold. A dramatic story which is easy to follow, the episode should inject some excitement into teen and adult classes.
Level and Language Focus
The video is good to play in class as it features direct-to-camera interviews and reconstructions providing two different ways of listening to English. The narration is relatively slow and should be suitable for upper-intermediate level and above. The episode also features a selection of different English-native and non-native accents.
A grammar point related to the video would be second and third conditionals (see worksheet for more).
