BBC fakery

The Daily Mail reports:

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.
