Sir David Attenborough
David Attenborough's 60-year career with the BBC has established him as one of the UK's most-loved broadcasters, and the Life series, which he writes and hosts, has helped to form a comprehensive survey of all life on the planet.
He studied geology and zoology at Clare College, Cambridge and, after two years' national service with the navy and a brief spell working in publishing; he joined the BBC as a producer in 1950. Eventually moving in front of the camera, Attenborough's face and voice gradually became synonymous with the BBC's wildlife output.
Attenborough has helmed numerous natural history series over the last forty years, beginning with the seminal Life on Earth in 1979 and including hugely acclaimed documentaries such as Blue Planet, Planet Earth and Dynasties. All of these series and many more have produced accompanying books. He has also been a passionate advocate for conservation and combating the effects of climate change, penning works such as A Life on Our Planet which outlines the devastating changes Attenborough has seen to the environment during his lifetime.
Now in his nineties, he continues to work on television, film and radio projects for the BBC as well as writing books of his own, providing insightful forewords and introductions to works of natural history and being involved in various publications for children.
