*Sir David Frederick Attenborough, OM, CH, CVO, CBE, FRS (born on May 8, 1926 in London, England) is one of the world’s best known broadcasters and naturalists. Widely considered one of the pioneers of the nature documentary, he has written and presented eight major series (with a ninth in production) surveying nearly every aspect of life on Earth. He is also a former senior manager at the BBC, having served as controller of BBC2 and director of programming for BBC Television in the 1960s and 1970s.
He is the younger brother of director and actor Richard Attenborough. [More]

Please welcome a man who makes you think that, well, maybe human beings aren’t so bad after all – Sir David Attenborough. [Continued]
