    Dramatic footage of a polar bear tending her newborn cubs in the flagship BBC show Frozen Planet was filmed in a Dutch zoo using fake snow.
    In one of the most engaging moments of its Winter episode, the tiny bears are shown mewling at their mother and nuzzling her for milk.
    Eight million viewers were led to believe the scene had been captured by BBC cameramen inside an underground cave in the brutal sub-zero temperatures of the Arctic wilderness.

    That could mean so many things, and I wonder which (if any) of these you mean:

    1. Not surprising because the BBC made the series?

    2. Not surprising because David Attenborough, an avowed evolutionist, had a big part in it?

    3. Not surprising because...well, what else would you expect from the Brits?

    Like Disney's famous lemmings episode, pushing them off a cliff to illustrate a false belief.
