The Discovery Channel has co-produced with the BBC a new David Attenborough-hosted 7-part nature series on the earth’s polar regions called Frozen Planet. It’s already begun airing on BBC. It’s set to air on the Discovery Channel in the near future.
But apparently Discovery has decided to air only the first six episodes, skipping the seventh and final installment, “On Thin Ice,” which is all about the effect of climate change on the poles. Discovery is taking a pass because of a “scheduling issue,” according to a British paper.
We have a call into Discovery on this. We’ll let you know what we find out.
