The Earthshot Prize

It has been a while since I mentioned Sir David Attenborough on here, but I find it staggering to note that he shows no sign of retirement. The greatest ever broadcaster is on our televisions again this evening, presenting The Earthshot Prize. From the looks of it, it is an attempt to reward and encourage efforts to look after the natural world. Prince William is linked to it too. While it might not be the type of epic natural history documentary series we usually associate with the great man (at 95, that sort of program is probably behind him) it really is good to see Attenborough still on TV. He is pretty much a cornerstone of British TV culture: to think that this man’s first programs were broadcast before my dad was born, and he still seems to be going strong, it really does blow my mind.
