Happy 90th Birthday David Attenborough.
In celebration of your long and distinguished career as BBC broadcaster, naturalist and basically superhero, indy100 has gathered nine particularly legend-worthy Attenborough feats:
Attenborosaurus is really something.
He obtained his first degree in natural sciences from Cambridge in 1947, and his latest honorary degree comes from Queen’s University in Belfast.
Other broadcasters would be hysterical after having to retake a scene so many times, but Attenborough just let the bird speak.
It was in a submersible. And he was 89 years old when he did it.
Possibly a precursor to the adventures of the late Steve Irwin, who got down with the animals too, his fearless approach to broadcasting set the bar extremely high.
David Attenborough gave his voice to this fantastic music video about badger conservation. You can hear his familiar drawl about one and a half minutes in.
Prince William called him a "national treasure" and we are inclined to agree.
