David Attenborough doubts his type of shows will continue
Sir David Attenborough believes his type of wildlife shows may cease to be made the day he retires.
The naturalist – who travelled to the remote Galapagos Islands this summer – told The Sun newspaper that he doubts whether wildlife programmes like those he presents will continue to exist after he finishes working.
“I’m a bit of a fossil in a way. The sort of films I make – there aren’t many like them now. I’m not sure that particular style of programme will go on being made.
“The fashionable thing is to make them more adventure stories than natural history, and that’s fine, it’s different.”
Galapagos 3D premiered on Sky 3D and Sky1 on New Year’s day.
