The last truly great man

There are few men left in the world one can call great; few truly amazing people, leading remarkable lives. There are no Churchils or Hemingways – no men who, for all their flaws, captivate, fascinate and inspire. Perhaps their era is simply passed. Yet, there is one left: one man as great as any of history. David Attenborough inspires and fascinates me, as he does most people. It was great to see him back on tv last night. I find it remarkable how, even after sixty years on tv, he still presents the best things on the box. To me, he is a comforting, reassuring constant; a (grand)father figure, who, no matter where I am, I’ll always be able to find. Long may that continue.
