Sir David Attenborough – What a Wonderful World

After what feels like weeks talking about Spear paintings and all that, I thought it was time for a little bit of culture.

To honour the 85-year-old Sir David Attenborough, who just concluded narrating his final series on the BBC, a UK ad agency mashed up footage from his BBC shows with his spoken-word recording of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.”

Wikipedia has it thus:

His career as the face and voice of natural history programmes has endured for more than 50 years. He is best known for writing and presenting the nine Life series, in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit, which collectively form a comprehensive survey of all life on the planet. He is also a former senior manager at the BBC, having served as controller of BBC Two and director of programming for BBC Television in the 1960s and 1970s.
