Attenborough: 60 Years In The Wild
Friday 30 November
David reveals what inspired him to become a conservationist, as well as confessing about the wildlife he has eaten. Early programmes reveal a very different attitude to conservation. In Zooquest he travelled the globe collecting wild animals for London Zoo.
On a tropical beach in Malaysia, David recalls how, in the 50s, after weeks of monotonous travel rations, he dug up turtle eggs to eat. Now he has returned to release newly hatched turtles in to the wild.
Finally he asks whether our changing attitudes and our greater knowledge of the world will be enough to save it for future generations.
During David Attenborough’s filmmaking career spanning 60 years, there have been unparalleled changes in the natural world. He takes a very personal journey in the last of the series through the six decades and the developments he has witnessed.
