THE AT­TEN­BOR­OUGH FAC­TOR

YOU (South Africa) - - YOU NEWS -

What would a na­ture doc­u­men­tary be with­out the gen­tle, cap­ti­vat­ing nar­ra­tion of David At­ten­bor­ough?

The renowned nat­u­ral­ist, who turned 91 in May, is once again be­hind the mi­cro­phone in Blue Planet 2. Last year he nar­rated the hugely suc­cess­ful Planet Earth 2 se­ries, which drew as many as 10 mil­lion view­ers per episode.

De­spite his age, At­ten­bor­ough has lost none of his en­thu­si­asm and re­spect for Mother Na­ture.

“I’m truly thrilled to be join­ing this new ex­plo­ration of the un­der­wa­ter worlds which cover most of our planet, yet are still its least known,” he says.

“There’s no ques­tion at all that we’ve only just scratched the sur­face as to what lies in the deep sea.”
