Attenborough, it seems, is back

At least amid all my current fury over Brexit – and last night’s newsnight enraged me so much it was frightening – I can still find good things to think about and look forward to. I caught this interview last night: David Attenborough, it seems, is back. I thought he had retired – and who would blame him? – but apparently he’s still going. At the end of a fascinating, and at times heartbreaking, interview in which he summarised sixty years of natural history film-making, Sir David gave us a big hint that his awesome career may not yet be over. He said he still felt like he was about 45, and alluded to more programmes to come. That’s great news, and enough to cheer me up. Something to cling on to as elsewhere things get more and more stupid.
