BBC to censor Bristol made TV?

The BBC has decided not to broadcast on TV an episode of David Attenborough’s flagship new British wildlife series Wild Isles, which was made by a Bristol production company.

The Guardian newspaper has reported this is due to fears of a backlash from Conservative politicians upset about its discussion of the destruction of nature, although the BBC has denied this.

West of England Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “Whether it was intended for iPlayer or primetime this Bristol-made programme deserves the widest possible audience. I urge the BBC to choose the right path and air it on BBC1 where it belongs. The climate and biodiversity crisis is the biggest crisis facing our planet and as many people as possible need to hear from trusted and informed experts like national treasure David Attenborough.”
