image for BBC Frozen Planet Faked?
Bear from Frozen Planet

BBC executives were today denying the entire series was faked, but agreed some footage could have been misleading.

One exec said: 'Ok, the footage of Attenborough in his back yard wading through polystyrene made to look like snow was a little fake but the squirrel in the tree behind the bear was most definitely real.'

We asked therefore if the bear was real. 'Err, no,' was his reply. 'It was in fact a man dressed up to simulate a polar bear mothering its cubs, which in turn were actually badgers spray painted white, but, as we said earlier we stand by our authenticity because the squirrel was real.'

We pointed out that squirrels have never been seen in the arctic, but the exec was adamant he had read reports of such animals making nests in attics. We pointed out the difference between an attic and the arctic at which point he asked which direction the job centre was.
