“I’ve been lucky enough to live through what well might be considered the golden age of natural history filmmaking.” – Sir David Attenborough
Sir David Attenborough has been part of the natural history filmmaking world for 60 years – a witness to a huge period of change in Earth’s history. Starting this Wednesday, Nature will be dedicating a three-part special to David Attenborough’s life and work.
Attenborough’s Life Stories: Life on Camera will be broadcast Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 8pm; Attenborough’s Life Stories: Understanding the Natural World will air Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 8pm; and Attenborough’s Life Stories: Our Fragile Planet will air Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 8pm on both CET and ThinkTV16.
Whether or not you’re a usual Nature watcher, this evolution of wildlife filmmaking is a visual treat told through Attenborough’s life and lens. The previews alone are a breathtaking and include everything from volcanoes and DNA to whales and gorillas.
