As it was identical each time it was aired I suspect a mistake when the show was ingested. I reported it on Andy Quested's bbc blog but he never said anything beyond noting that there had been some issues, now resolved.

On a vaguely related note, I reported last week that the first episode
of 'Human Planet' on BBC ONE SD claimed to be in surround sound. There
were suggestions that it might be Dolby Pro-Logic. I didn't set up more
speakers to listen for a difference, but the second episode just carried
the usual 'stereo' tag.
