Greta signs up for a BBC series

"Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg is getting her own TV series about the environment."

"The 17-year-old has signed up to take part in the programmes which will follow her journey around the world as she campaigns against climate change, and finds out more about what can be done about it."

"The series will also document her personal journey as she deals with growing up in the spotlight, as well as other challenges such as writing speeches and meeting world leaders." 

"The series is being made by BBC Studios' Science Unit, but there are no details yet on when or where we might be able to see it. 
Rob Liddell who is the Executive Producer for BBC Studios said:"

"Climate change is probably the most important issue of our lives so it feels timely to make an authoritative series that explores the facts and science behind this complex subject."


Rob Liddell from the BBC appears in the background towards the end of the video. He had followed Greta and her family to Canada.

It should be noted that the presenter in the video refers to Greta Thunberg as having a mental illness. Although depression and eating disorders may be classified as mental illnesses [from which Greta seems to have recovered] there are many in the neurodiversity movement who would object to those on the autistic spectrum being classified this way.
