The final episode of David Attenborough’s nature series Africa has been re-edited by the BBC in order to remove a comment Attenborough made in reference to climate change. The original episode aired earlier in the week, and featured Attenborough saying:

‘Some parts of the continent have become 3.5 Celsius hotter in the past 20 years.’

The BBC has since stated that this comment was ‘disputable’ and has therefore removed it from the BBC One broadcast of the episode.
