What is it with
the BBC and bears? First, there was the ‘faked’ scene
in Frozen Planet involving the polar variety (not that it was really faked).
Then this week, a panda was included on its women ‘faces of the year 2011
list - namely Tian Tian (or Sweetie), one of the two giant pandas currently on loan
to Edinburgh zoo from China.
This may be the
season of good will, but that didn’t stop Twitter getting angry - an anger which has been simmering ever since the announcement of the all-male Sports Personality of the Year shortlist.
