The BBC is set to produce a documentary series following the life of Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenage climate activist.
Documentary Will “Follow Greta’s International Crusade”
The show currently has no title, release date, or episode schedule. BBC Studios announced that the show will “follow Greta’s international crusade which takes her to the front line of climate change in some of the most extraordinary places on earth, as she explores what actions could be taken to limit climate change and the damage it causes:”
As she travels Greta meets not only leading scientists but political leaders and business heavyweights, exploring the scientific evidence with them and challenging them to change. The films will also charts her own journey into adulthood as she continues to be confronted by the real world consequences of inaction; and will share some of the quiet moments as she writes the impactful speeches that are now broadcast and analysed around the world, as she lives a teenage life like no other.
“Climate change is probably the most important issue of our lives so it feels timely to make an authoritative series that explores the facts and science behind this complex subject,” Rob Liddell, the produce of the show, said. “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,” he continued.
Go Back to School Greta!
Last December, the BBC arranged for Greta Thunberg to guest edit Radio 4’s flagship morning news programme, Today. This, coupled with the new documentary series, really shows just how obsessed the mainstream media are with the teenage activist.
It makes sense – Thunberg is the voice of the establishment.
As much as she claims to rail against powerful interests, she is pushing the same agenda that every corporation and government institution are backing. She may be a touch more radical, but then again, they need themselves to sound reasonable to the general public!
Little Greta needs to go back to school – let the adults do the talking!
