Just watched last episode of Frozen Planet. Note from my TV Guide that this episode is not to be broadcast in America!
Can only presume the land of the Free don't want to frighten the deniers.........

It is, after all, the country where a TV presenter comes up with the loony idea that the Muppets are Communist!

The US is not the only country that has bought the series without the final episode.

Burying heads in the sand comes to mind but then not everyone agrees with the Global Warming theory. It seems they have now changed their minds and will show the 7th episode after all but with someone else narrating over David Attenboroughs commentary. I posted the article on a community site that has mainly American ladies to see what sort of reaction they have to it, they do seem very blinkered and insular when it comes to the outside World and what goes on elsewhere.

I meant to add but they aren't adverse to meddling in other countries when it suits their purpose..

absentgrana who are the other countries?

There are apparently 30 countries who have bought the series China included and 10 of them aren't going to show the last episode can't seem to find anything that gives the names of those countries but it seems Australia may be one of them which surprised me.
