EastEnders will air a one off special of their iconic credits for Frozen Planet II
The soap will highlight the challenges the planet’s frozen regions are facing due to a warming climate
To promote the final episode of the critically acclaimed series Frozen Planet II, a new take of the iconic EastEnders map will highlight the challenges the planet’s frozen regions are facing due to the warming climate.
It will also reveal how rising sea levels could one day affect us much closer to home.
Viewers will also see the soap’s famous map of the London’s East End transformed to show the river Thames bursting its banks with parts of the city underwater.
The image will portray a hypothetical scenario of what could potentially happen to parts of London in the future if climate change effects continue.
It will then zoom out to show a satellite image of the Artic and point to the last episode of Sir David Attenborough’s series.
Jack Bootle, Head of Commissioning, Specialist Factual, said: “Over the course of Frozen Planet II, we have encountered some of the world’s most remarkable animals and discovered some of the challenges they face due to a warming climate.”
He continued: “As we get ready for the final episode of the series, I hope this striking image will remind viewers that what happens in the coldest parts of the world directly impacts us here in the UK.”
Episode six of Frozen Planet II – Our Frozen Planet – will show people at home the effect climate change is having on Earth’s frozen regions as they are undergoing unprecedented changes.
It will feature some of the scientists and people dedicating their lives to documenting these changes understanding their impact, not just on the lives of the animals and people who live there, but on the planet as a whole.
This comes after EastEnders confirmed new details about the show’s sendoff for Dot Branning, including six characters from the past returning.
Frozen Planet II’s final episode is on Sunday 16th October, 8pm, BBC One. You can catch up on the whole series on BBC iPlayer.
