At­ten­bor­ough’s Par­adise Birds BBC2, 8pm

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR TV WEEK -

No qualms about it, Sir David At­ten­bor­ough is the kind of fig­ure­head that will never need an in­tro­duc­tion, his name now syn­ony­mous with some of the most weird and won­der­ful in­hab­i­tants of the an­i­mal king­dom. And yet the veteran broad­caster still doesn’t show any signs of slow­ing the pace any­time soon – not bad go­ing to say he’s in his late eight­ies. Now he’s back on our screens, in­dulging in one of his life-long pas­sions and un­cov­er­ing the story of how birds of par­adise have cap­ti­vated ex­plor­ers, film­mak­ers and even roy­alty.
