I watch without worrying about what he puts on show. I enjoy the program for what it is. It can be watched by any age group and is always well filmed by some of the best operators in the business. The trouble they take to get the right shot is amazing. Considering it is my license fee that pays for it, I may as well get my monies worth.
for the sheer pleasure of seeing animals filmed in their natural habitats by some of the world's best wildlife camera and sound teams.
The films are deliberately produced so that endangered animals and habitats are given the widest possible publicity - there isn't much point in showing towns in an Attenborough wildlife programme. David Attenborough is reaching the end of his career, and he's doing what he wants to do - he's given a more or less free hand because his films make millions all over the world - he's right at the very top of an exclusive tree.
His priority is to spread the word about animals and habitats that need help, and he does it superbly. I for one will miss his work terribly when he finally decides to call it a day.
