The BBC and Greta Thunberg agree – make a documentary series together.
It was not long ago that Greta Thunberg was a lonely 15-year-old who sat on the ground at the Parliament House with a placard. The change has gone into racing. Now she is both a celebrated and acclaimed world celebrity and global icon.
BBC follows Greta around the world for the documentary
Greta’s success has made a big impression all over the world. So big that the BBC now chooses to follow the climate activist’s international campaign in a new documentary series, the BBC writes in a press release.
In the series, the BBC will accompany Greta Thunberg as she visits places where climate change is particularly noticeable. There she will try to find out what can be done to limit climate change and meet with leading researchers, businessmen, and political leaders.
“Being able to do this with Greta is a great privilege” – Rob Liddell, executive producer
The press release states that the series will also follow Greta’s journey towards becoming an adult.
– Climate change is probably the most important issue in our lives, so it feels appropriate to do a series exploring the facts and science behind this complex subject. Being able to do this with Greta is a very big privilege, to get an inside view of what it is like to be a global icon and one of the most famous faces on the planet, says executive producer Rob Liddell in a comment.
