BBC censors documentary on loss of environment in the UK due to fear of backlash from politicians and lobbies

The BBC has taken the decision to not air the 6th episode of David Attenborough's "Wild Isles" documentary on TV and only make it available on-demand through the BBC iPlayer, fearing anger from conservative politicians as well as other anti-environment lobbies.
Wild Isles is a documentary series narrated by the famous Sir David Attenborough, looking at the environment in the British Isles. The 6th and final episode focuses on the loss of nature in the UK and what are the causes of that loss, and also looks at some of the activists defending nature and some of the possible solutions to the loss.
After the BBC took the decision to not air this 6th episode, inside sources at the channel itself have said in anger that the corporation has "bowed to the pressure from lobbying groups with "dinosaurian ways"".

          Conservative people around the Globe and in UK do not want to change their way of living their lives, hence BBC get pressure from politicians and industries to do...nothing for the climate

                This is because there is no independence in most of the media platforms, there is always someone behind the button!!

                          A media should be independent, transparent and reliable in the dissemination of information. BBC's decision makes us question its credibility.

                              I didn't expect BBC to compromise on it's mandate as a conventional,reliable and trusted media channel.
