This article seems entirely un-encyclopaedic... looks more like an advert or sock-puppeted self-aggrandizement. Surely content like this should be reserved for imdb.com?

Corrupt, nepotistic, cynical, disingenuous, far-leftist BBC recycling at it's best...

The above comment seems to be written in a state of rage. Does anyone agree with me that it should be deleted? Kristian (talk) 23:55, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Alice Roberts edited out[edit]

There is no mention of why Alice Roberts was entirely edited out of the international version. If available, any information about this would be interesting. Kristian (talk) 23:45, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

I am in Australia and as well as owning the BBC version on DVD I recently watched the international version on subscription TV. I found the BBC version almost unwatchable with frequent "in your face" glamour shots of the undoubtedly attractive (but quite unknown over here) Roberts totally overwhelming the content. Quite irritating and unnecessary - to me the international version was far more watchable without the constant eye contact and teeth. I would bet that's why she was cut out of the international version. Friends and family watching the BBC version were also quite irritated and wanted to know if this was a serious documentary or a Roberts self promotion. Quite possibly this is why she was edited out, but of course it would be hard to find a reference. --MichaelGG (talk) 10:59, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
