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.… (mais)

Life on Air por David Attenborough (2002)

  1. 10
    Shark Trouble: True Stories About Sharks and the Sea por Peter Benchley (themulhern)
    themulhern: Both books are part memoir, part travelogue, part discussion of the industry (radio, books, televison, movies), part science lesson. David Attenborough is the better ranconteur...but he didn't get nearly killed quite so much.

Definitely best enjoyed as an audio book. David Attenborough narrates his own life. I learned a bit about the history of British television broadcasting and quite a bit about Attenborough, but what I enjoyed most about the book was that it was like an audio version of the BBC nature documentaries I like so much. Perfect to listen to while walking the dog or going for a run. ( )

A great review of a great life. It covers the change in television technologies, and a diverse number of species and habitats. David has a great sense of humor and has had some wonderful and funny adventures. I highly reccommend it! ( )

David Attenborough recounts his life working for the BBC making nature documentaries. While I love his programmes and thoughtful, eloquent and always engaging narration, I was surprised by how much I struggled with these memoirs. There are plenty of amusing anecdotes from trips abroad (and even from his time working behind a desk), recounted with a wry and gentle sense of humour, to entertain the reader, but somehow they all bleed into one another and after a while I couldn't remember where a particular incident occurred. The rather indifferent editing didn't help, and so I only had a feeling of relief when I realised that I'd left the book behind in the waiting room of a hospital, and I'd kept on reading long after I would have given up on any other book, persisting merely out of a sense of duty to the man.

Fascinating insight into how David Attenborough first entered broadcasting and slowly developed his specialist nature documentaries. The stories of his earliest expeditions are pretty hair raising as he had minimal technology to support his expeditions was gone for weeks at a time in very remote, often hostile parts of the world. Highly recommended. ( )

There isn’t a single false note in this funny book. Not an ounce of bravado, or a page that doesn’t lift the spirits with some beautifully turned anecdote or piece of recondite information. Here is the background to the famous rolling-with-gorillas sequence, the great Siberian hamster fiasco, the hazardous encounter with a salmon-fishing brown bear. David Attenborough’s familiar voice comes through in every line, his curiosity as sharp today as it was when he started in broadcasting nearly 60 years ago. And to think that he might have been lost to a career in publishing.
