Digging Beneath the Surface of Frozen Planet

We asked a few people at Discovery what the deal was with this Frozen Planet show and they explained that while the BBC is already airing its version of Frozen Planet, the Discovery Channel version is still being edited, since it is not scheduled to air in the US until sometime in the first quarter of 2012. In fact, there's not even a set air date yet, which should tell you something about how much work is yet to be done on the series. As it turns out, creating different versions of these shows for audiences in different countries is commonplace. The deals behind these co-productions are complicated, but, simply put, the BBC and Discovery Channel share footage - as well as the stories and messages that go with that footage - but always edit their own versions, including using different narrators.
