Sir david attenborough is britain's best known natural history film maker. His career as a naturalist and broadcaster has spanned nearly six decades, and in this volume of memoirs sir david tells stories of the people and animals he has met and the places he has visited. His first job after cambridge university and two years in the royal navy was at a london publishing house. Then in 1952 he joined the bbc as a trainee producer, and it was while working on the zoo quest series 1954 64 that he had his first opportunity to undertake expeditions to remote parts of the globe, to capture intimate footage of rare wildlife in its natural habitat. He was controller of bbc2 1965 68, during which time he introduced colour television to britain, then director of programmes for the bbc 1969 1972. However, in 1973 he abandoned administration altogether to return to documentary making and writing, and has established himself as the world's leading natural history programme maker with several landmark bbc series, including life on earth 1979, the living planet 1984, the trials of life 1990, the private life of plants 1995, life of birds 1998, the blue planet 2001, life of mammals 2002, planet earth 2006 and life in cold blood 2008. Sir david is an honorary fellow of clare college, cambridge, a fellow of the royal society and was knighted in 1985. He is also britain's most respected, trusted and lauded natural history broadcaster and writer, championing conservation and standing at the forefront of issues concerning the planet's declining species. A lot has changed since his first television documentary, and in this updated edition of life on air sir david tells us of his experiences of filming in the 21st century.
