Format: DVD
David Attenborough could have easily adopted a sentimental approach as he reviewed & prognosticated about what an eventful life he led & how fortunate he had been to be able to personally witness the splendors of natural history.

Instead he adopts his usual approach of presenting a string of interesting factoids to illuminate his point.

It is not stated at any point in the documentary what the real reasons for the production of this documentary are. However David Attenborough, at age 83, finally decided to retire from the BBC, one can reliably assume that it is a celebration of the most pre-eminent exponents & presenters of Natural History documentaries in the world.

This three hour documentary is handled over 3 episodes; each dealing with a different topic as follows:
* Life on Camera
* Understanding the Natural World
* Our Fragile Planet

The first episode deals with the role of technology over the past 60 years & the limitations thereof. David Attenborough has always been a keen proponent for the adoption of the latest technology where this would argument, enhance or eliminate the shortcomings of the existing technology.

David Attenborough deftly handles this by using his documentaries as the basis for his story. Starting with his initial documentary 60 years ago entitled Zoo Quest with its grainy black & white images, he gradually illustrates each technological improvement through the lens of his own documentaries.

The Seventies saw the introduction of colour when David Attenborough was appointed the first MD of BBC's Colour TV Channel. Fortunately David quickly "retired" from Senior Management & resumed his role as a Presenter.

Nothing you may write about Sir David Attenborough can do him full justice.

He is one of those people you automatically feel unqualified to make any sort of comment at all (much like Richard Feynman, but for different reasons).

That Sir David has become a household name and is universally loved would be stating the obvious.

Watching this documentary takes you back to times where programs were about contents, rather than graphics.

Sir David makes the explanations very personal, with that child-like wide-eyed luminosity in the way he seems to be discovering with you the very things he is explaining.

I will treasure his DVDs in the same way I did with the ones from Carl Sagan. They are an instant classic that will be remembered for a long time.

60 Years in the Wild was an unmissable series; typical magic from David Attenborough and so special to hear about bygone techniques and his inspirations. Wonderful.

It is fascinating to watch David Attenborough age gracefully while retaining the fascination and wonder that always made his eyes and mind the best possible perspective one could have to view this amazing planet he inhabits with us all. Thank you for a life well lived!
