It was recently revealed that senior BBC journalist Roger Harrabin accepted £15,000 in grants from the University of East Anglia, which was at the heart of the ‘Climategate’ scandal, and then reported on the story without declaring this interest to viewers.
Now the same BBC has been caught out using fake "frozen wilderness" footage to prop up a documentary promoting the falsified AGW hoax. Sir David Attenborough filmed a key scene from the BBC series "Frozen Planet" in a zoo using fake snow.
From the UK Daily Mirror:
No ONE wants to criticise Sir David Attenborough, given the amazing television he has made and the work he’s done to preserve wildlife and educate us about the way we are destroying the planet.
But in the case of Polar Beargate, he would be better to recognise that what he and the BBC did was duplicitous and simply apologise.
The dodgy footage was the most touching scene in Episode Five of Frozen Planet – watched by some eight million trusting viewers.
Attenborough’s voiceover for the footage sighed in wonder: “On these slopes beneath the snow, new lives are beginning.
“The cubs are born blind and tiny. In two more months polar bear families will emerge on the snowy slopes all around the Arctic... but for now they lie protected within their icy cocoons.”
