Forever fascinating

Speaking of "survivors" - it's the 86th birthday today of the most important broadcaster of the 20th and 21st centuries, Sir David Attenborough!

At an age when many people might prefer to put their feet up, potter in their garden and perhaps write their memoirs, Sir David just keeps on going - producing some of the most captivating, enchanting insights into little-known aspects of nature, in his uniquely intelligent, measured way.

Thankfully, rumours of his retirement were unfounded, and in just the last year his series on Madagascar continued to enthral us - long may he continue!

More Attenborough moments here and here.
