Sir David At­ten­bor­ough to turn Christ­mas DJ

Coventry Telegraph - - NEWS -

SIR David At­ten­bor­ough is turn­ing DJ for Christ­mas.

The vet­eran broad­caster, 92, will delve back to one of his first nat­u­ral his­tory pro­grammes, Zoo Quest, as he takes to the air­waves.

He will play the lo­cal mu­sic he recorded, from fu­neral gongs to chant­ing, while mak­ing the BBC pro­gramme.

The nat­u­ral­ist first came to na­tional at­ten­tion in the 1950s on Zoo Quest, which fol­lowed Lon­don Zoo’s ex­pe­di­tions to catch ex­otic an­i­mals.

In his spare time, while film­ing the pro­grammes, he made sound record­ings.

The Blue Planet and Dy­nas­ties nar­ra­tor passed his tapes on to the BBC Sound Archive, which copied and pre­served them all.
