David Attenborough by Tim Walker for Vogue UK June 2012 (I love him I love him I love him I love him. It’s his 86th birthday on 8th May and his new series starts on Monday!)
My piece for an exhibition opening tomorrow!

Frozen Planet - On Thin Ice
Simply amazing, David, simply amazing. I can see why they didn’t want it shown to US audiences, but the search for the truth must conquer ease of belief. The sheer breadth and width of your investigation and presentation are inspiring, worthy of the relationship of Carl Sagan and the universe, but to nature and planet earth… the only one we have ever known.
The facts are tough.
The facts are unsettling.
The facts are climate change.

Attenborough in Paradise and Other Personal Voyages
A collection of seven David Attenborough specials, Attenborough in Paradise represents some of the famed naturalist’s most personal quests and passionate enthusiasms. Programming includes Attenborough tracing a piece of amber in The Amber Time Machine, discovering the history behind a strange figurine in The Lost Gods of Easter Island, and realizing a childhood dream by visiting New Guinea to record the spectacular courtship displays of the birds of paradise. The set also includes Life on Air, a 2002 tribute to Attenborough, chronicling the world-renowned natural history expert’s 50-year career at the BBC, presented by Michael Palin
“I don’t run a car, have never run a car. I could say that this is because I have this extremely tender environmentalist conscience, but the fact is I hate driving.”
I’m sorry this blog is lacking a bit in posts. But stay with us! David Attenborough goodness will continue to be broadcast.

Hey, thanks for your question.
I’m afraid there’s no information about the tour raising funds for charity, but that doesn’t mean that Sir David has already organised something privately.
I’m sorry I can’t give a better answer. I’d love to hear about the shows though!
HOW HAVE I NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE!?
Two of my favourite things!! <3
“Three and a half million years separate the individual who left these footprints in the sands of Africa from the one who left them on the moon. A mere blink in the eye of evolution. Using his burgeoning intelligence, this most successful of all mammals has exploited the environment to produce food for an ever-increasing population. In spite of disasters when civilisations have over-reached themselves, that process has continued, indeed accelerated, even today… Perhaps the time has now come to put that process into reverse. Instead of controlling the environment for the benefit of the population, perhaps it’s time we control the population to allow the survival of the environment.” - David Attenborough, The Life of Mammals (2002).
