“The real change in our perspective of the natural world is not due to improvements in TV technology but has been achieved through scientific revolutions.
The darker side of the changes that Attenborough has seen in 60 years, is that just as we are learning more and more about the glories of the living world, and as new breath-taking visions are being brought into our homes, we are destroying these wonders at an accelerating rate…

Attenborough: 60 Years in the Wild begins on BBC2 on 16 November.
