The Other Platinum Jubilee

While a lot is being said about the queen’s platinum jubilee next year, I’d just like to flag up what I personally think is an even more remarkable anniversary. Next year marks seventy years since Sir David Attenborough started working for the BBC. While that’s mind blowing in itself, the great man will present a new program, The Green Planet, in January. When you remember that Attenborough has been making programs since 1954 – before either of my parents were born – and has a body of work behind him which no other television presenter or personality can come close to, your jaw can only drop in awe. For him to still be going so strongly is even more amazing. Attenborough is just as much a national treasure as the Queen, so I really hope his platinum jubilee gets the celebration it deserves too.
