Last night the BBC changed the iconic EastEnders credits to send a reminder to take care of our planet before it’s too late.
Viewers saw the soap’s iconic map of the London’s East End transformed to show the river Thames bursting its banks, with parts of the capital under water.
The future-gazing ident by BBC Creative, reveals what some parts of London could look like in the future if sea levels raise by two meters.
The image zooms out to a satellite image of the Arctic and point to Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet series, underlining the message that the challenge of melting ice in this frozen region could one day affect us all close to home.
