Most of us are familiar with Sir David Attenborough’s work. This veteran broadcaster and naturalist is best known for writing and presenting, in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit, the nine natural history documentary series. This collection of programs collectively form a comprehensive survey of animal and plant life on Earth. He is the only person to have won BAFTAs for programs in each of black and white, colour, HD, 3D and 4K.
Attenborough is widely considered a national treasure in Britain, although he does not like the term. Attenborough’s contribution to broadcasting and wildlife film-making has brought him international recognition. He has often been called “the greatest broadcaster of our time.” His programs are usually cited as an example of what public service broadcasting should be, even by critics of the BBC, and have influenced a generation of wildlife filmmakers.
Attenborough wrote and presented The Life of Mammals, a nature documentary, that studies the evolution and habits of the various mammal species. The following video features an amusing clip from The Life of Mammals, where David Attenborough looks at the life of a sloth. Sloths have adapted to the lack of nutrition in their leaves diet by hanging around and not doing much. The clip even gives us a chance to see one moving at high speed!
