More Gems from a Knight to Remember.
on 4 September 2011
Having long enjoyed everything from 'Zoo Quest' through his other incomparable series to 'Life on Air', both in book and Audiobook form, I was happy to listen again to Sir David Attenborough's snippets from his Radio 4 series. Even having heard many of them before did not make them any less pleasing, or edifying, to hear once more.
Having been introduced to Alfred Russell Wallace through the 'O.U.' it was nice to encounter him again through this recording, 'Earthworms' also piqued my interest, having written an essay on them for 'O' level it was amazing to hear even more facts of which I had hitherto been unaware, the yawning chasm between a true professional and a mere 'dilettante' looms here, and which left me with even more respect for these surprising, and very necessary, animals. 'Foreign Fare' is amongst my favourites, if you can pick favourites from an offering replete with gems showing, as it does, the wierd workings of the human mind.
Another BBC 'Tour de Force' from that most erudite, interesting, and captivating of presenters, if ever a man deserved a Peerage it's Sir David Attenborough.
