BBC drops Frozen Planet's climate change episode


Recommended Posts

Did the BBC drop a climate change episode from its wildlife series Frozen Planet to help the show sell better in the US? Some people think so, the Telegraph reports.

"British viewers will see seven episodes, the last of which deals with global warming and the threat to the natural world posed by man. However, viewers in other countries, including the United States, will only see six episodes. The environmental programme has been relegated by the BBC to an “optional extra” alongside a behind-the-scenes documentary which foreign networks can ignore."

This opinion piece from Media Matters is also relevant: "[...] the Discovery Channel will not air the climate change episode of Frozen Planet in the U.S. due to a "scheduling issue."

No matter what are the reasons why these networks drops a very good environmental documentary is that, they simply don't care about the environment at all. They only look for the money value of their shows. No matter how do they put it, environmental documentaries should be given its full priorities to be aired and watched by the whole world. That is only if they really care about it.
