The BBC has commissioned a new thriller The Trick.
The unique film is based on the history of climate change Professor Philip Jones.
Philip was the center of international media attention in 2009 when his email was hacked.
Leaked news appeared to indicate that climate change was a “scam” made up by scientists.
As a result, it sparked great controversy in the scientific community.
However, not everything was what it seemed.
What is the BBC thriller The Trick about?
The film traces the persecution of Phil Jones as he fights to relieve himself and science.
“The Trick deals with the potentially devastating consequences of climate change denial for humanity,” reads the synopsis.
But it will also show “how the media storm has undermined public confidence in science”.
