image for BBC denies hoodwinking viewers
A still from BBCs 'Frozen Planet'

The BBC, renowned for making computer generated space and pro-evolution dinosaur propaganda programmes is today in hot water over it's latest hit - Frozen Planet.

Footage of baby Polar Bears in a dutch zoo, was interspersed with footage of Polar Bears in the wild. David Attenborough's narration of the deception was cunning enough to not directly state that the Bears were in the wild, but that was certainly the trickery they were trying to promote.

Apparently this is kind of chicanery is commonplace in these kinds of programmes according to a press release by aunty beeb. The beeb revealed the sleight of editing in behind the scenes footage on their website.

Now Ofcom are going to go through the hours of 'natural history' programmes to see just how much of the BBC's output is factual. According to figures made up by me, it is estimated that a staggering 2.34% could be based on fact.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
