Текст № 4 для прослушивания
PR: Last year, in a television series called Faking it, various people were given four weeks to learn the skills of a new profession. Peter Harris, a painter and decorator from Liverpool, was one of them. Peter, welcome.
PR: So why were you selected to take part in the programme, Peter?
P: Well, one day, I got a phone call from someone asking me if I'd like to take part. They were looking for someone who wanted to spend four weeks learning to be an artist, so you'd learn how to do abstract art. And the cameras would be there to see how you got on.
PR: And what did your friends say?
P: They thought it was funny, because I know nothing about art. Before the filming started, I went down to the local art gallery with them to have a look at some abstract art.
PR: So now you're an artist, right?
P: Sort of, yeah. Actually, since the show, I've sold about 15 paintings which has impressed my family more than anything. No, the only people I didn't like were some of the people who bought my work. They only seemed to be interested in how much it would cost in the future.
PR: Peter, thank you.
