Link: BBC faces fine for polar bear film - UK - News - London Evening Standard
A BBC team faces a fine of nearly £6,000 for “disturbing” polar bears while filming them.
Springwatch host Gordon Buchanan spent 40 minutes shooting footage inside a plexiglass box while a 7ft bear tried to claw its way in.
The Svalbard authorities, which oversee the Norwegian archipelago where the crew were working, has written to co-producer Jason Roberts, warning him he is to be fined 50,000 krone.
Environmental laws protect the animals.
The filming was for a BBC co-production with the Discovery channel The Polar Bear Family & Me, screened in January. Mr Roberts has 14 days to respond.
