Book: Attenborough, David «Life on Air»

Life on Air

Sir David Attenborough is Britain's best-known natural history film-maker. His career as a naturalist and broadcaster has spanned nearly six decades, and in this volume of memoirs Sir David tells stories of the people and animals he has met and the places he has visited. His first job - after Cambridge University and two years in the Royal Navy - was at a London publishing house. Then in 1952 he joined the BBC as a trainee producer, and it was while working on the Zoo Quest series (1954-64) that he had his first opportunity to undertake expeditions to remote parts of the globe, to capture intimate footage of rare wildlife in its natural habitat. He was Controller of BBC2 (1965-68), during which time he introduced colour television to Britain, then Director of Programmes for the BBC (1969-1972). However, in 1973 he abandoned administration altogether to return to documentary-making and writing, and has established himself as the world's leading Natural History programme maker...

Attenborough, David

   b. 1926
   Naturalist and broadcaster
   David Attenborough, younger brother of actordirector Richard Attenborough, joined BBC television in 1952, fronting Zoo Quest, the programme which, between 1956 and 1965, transformed the teatime wildlife show from patronizing sentimentality into serious education children’s programming. Attenborough then entered the BBC’s administrative hierarchy, where he established both BBC2 and colour transmission. His catholic tastes and scheduling instincts brought shows as varied as snooker, ‘The Forsyte Saga’ and Jacob Bronowski’s ‘The Ascent of Man’ to BBC2, establishing it as a widely appealing and innovative service. After fifteen years, however, Attenborough returned to broadcasting to complete the trilogy begun with ‘Life on Earth’, which was seen by an estimated 500 million people worldwide. Subsequent prestige series have made him perhaps the most universally popular, respected and influential broadcaster and ecologist on the planet.
