A master story teller.,
This review is from: David Attenborough - Attenborough in Paradise and Other Personal Voyages [DVD]  (DVD)
David Attenborough's great strength is that he is so sold on his subject, he has no need to be anything but himself and so has proved to be able to reach a wide audience across the age spectrum. We made a bargain with our grandchildren that instead of spending the equivalent (and more) to take them to the local cinema, we would try investing in these DVD's instead with them being the judges as to how successful the idea turned out to be. We set a date and then all settled down with juice and popcorn to hand. The children (7 + 3) watched enthralled and gave the experience the thumbs up - quite an achievement with the competition being as stiff as it is. And of course, they've been able to watch again and again and again!! Now we're all enthusiastically saving up to buy The Life Collection.
