The Swedish-born teenage climate activist, Greta Thunberg, will be featured in a documentary-style series dedicated to environmental and climate change issues. The show will be produced by the BBC’s Science Unit, which announced the event during its Showcase 2020.
There is no information on how many episodes or seasons the Thunberg documentary will run, or when it will be aired, although the release detailed that the premiere would follow her international crusade on the front lines of global climate change. Travelling to unexpected places, Thunberg, 17, is to explore what must be done to limit climate change and its collateral damage.
In the series, she will meet leading scientists, as well as political leaders and business heavyweights, to discuss scientific reasoning, while challenge them to work towards mitigating a global climate change catastrophe. The series also promises to take a closer look at the call to limit the aggregate global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, bringing together “a chorus of experts” to explain and prove the unambiguous assertion.
“To be able to do this with Greta is an extraordinary privilege, getting an inside view on what it’s like being a global icon and one of the most famous faces on the planet,” BBC Studios Executive Producer Rob Liddell said.
The news that the young climate activist would be given additional air time, in addition to her numerous speeches, did not catch the fancy of some netizens.
Rather than yet again giving over our national broadcaster to the pulpit of St Greta, why not commission a series where politicians and ministers are grilled on the practicalities of meeting the Net Zero target, and how much our taxes are expected to rise in order to pay for it? https://t.co/MEtAXPEMbz— Madeline Grant (@Madz_Grant) February 10, 2020

BBC to produce TV series about Greta Thunberg's life https://t.co/3RIpoFq2HH
Greta Thunberg (professional protester,feted by those who are responsible for the CE) is to travel the world to make a TV series about the CE. One of the things she will preach is the need not to travel the world.— Lab is either 100% socialist,or it is nothing. (@alltoplay4) February 11, 2020
Another con merchant.
Capitalism is responsible for the CE.
