Viewers craved Q&A hard after the ABC used a clash between a celebrity scientist and a One Nation senator to promote an upcoming science panel special.

The controversial promo came when the new general manager of the ABC admitted that the national broadcaster should be more balanced when it came to different views.

In August 2016, Brian Cox, a visiting BBC TV physicist from the United Kingdom, talked to former Queensland senator Malcolm Roberts about climate change.

& # 39; I brought the graph, nonetheless, & # 39; said Professor Cox, keeping a diagram of the rising temperature on Earth.

Roberts, whose senate career has since been revived, claimed that the US National Aviation and Space Agency had falsified global warming data.

& # 39; The data has been corrupted, manipulated & # 39 ;, he said.

NASA claims that 97 percent of the world's climate scientists agree that people are responsible for global warming.

An ABC voice-over promoting the Q&A science specialty of the night seemed to mock Mr. Roberts, who challenged the science of climate change, to advertise Professor Cox's return to the program.

& # 39; This time he is joined by real scientists & # 39 ;, a male voice said.

The ABC is accused of left-wing bias with its critics on Twitter and describes the scientific panel special as & # 39; propaganda & # 39 ;.

& # 39; More propaganda through the ABC & # 39 ;, a man said.

& # 39; Have a panel of scientists who can also talk about the fact that things don't heat up.

& # 39; Where is the balance? Never a balance of the ABC. & # 39;

The complaints were tweeted a few days before ABC director David Anderson cheered that the national broadcaster should be better at broadcasting a greater diversity of opinions.

& # 39; The perspective on views that we represent is something that we can improve & # 39 ;, he told the Sydney Morning Herald and The age.

& # 39; I think we can sometimes use more diversity of views.

& # 39; Sometimes I think that people without realizing it, show a prejudice. & # 39;
