The BBC has announced a new series – featuring climate activist Greta Thunberg.

The program, made by the broadcaster’s Science Unit, will ‘follow Greta’s international crusade, which takes her to the front line of climate change in some of the most extraordinary places on earth’, as she meets with scientists, politicians, and business people.

According to the BBC, the show will also chart Thunberg’s journey into adulthood, and will share some of her quiet moments like writing speeches.

‘Extraordinary privilege’

“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, BBC Studios Executive Producer said.

“To be able to do this with Greta is an extraordinary privilege, getting an inside view on what it’s like being a global icon and one of the most famous faces on the planet.”

The BBC has not yet announced broadcast details of the program.
