In May 2015 Sir David Attenborough Hon FSB captivated an audience of almost 500 guests at the Science Museum in London and helped the Society of Biology to raise nearly £20,000 to support its charitable aims.
In conversation with TV paleopathologist Professor Alice Roberts FSB, Sir David spoke of the importance of natural history filmmaking in connecting people to the plight of the world’s biodiversity and climate.

  • A human being that has changed the minds of millions of people on our planet and helped countless animals from becoming exstinct no doubt. He has given us the wonderful opportunity to observe the planets weird and amazing creatures. Life on earth has been my favourite pastime with Sir David Attenbouragh and I think he is just a superior human being.

  • He's there with the lovely Alice Roberts and one of the things he's explained to her is that the oceans are the planet's environments he's most worried about and that makes perfect sense cos they are the world's most unexplored habitats cos they are so deep so you can hardly blame him for being so worried about the oceans.

  • @ 6:54 - the slug under the stone ploy again... Neil deGrass Tyson also refers to a slug under the rock found by a kid's curiosity

  • At 5 mins he goes on about conservation. He failed to mention his total lack of concern for that topic, how he's ignored species extinction and conservation for over 50 years .Deliberately. He says so himself in other interviews. He's no inspiration but he's done immense harm by keeping the reality of the devastation to the natural world by making rose tinted spectacles programmes, showing how "wonderful" everything is. Environmental concerns? Not in Atty's world. Yeh, thanks a lot for ignoring habitat destruction, Mr.Attenborough...

    • Outrageous comments above by someone who obviously hasn't watched many of Sir David's revelatory programmes/discussion groups & university lectures etc. on his DEEP CONCERN for all wildlife and ALL HABITATS on our Planet including his latest warnings about the threatened loss & extinction of our VITAL bees and butterfly population. Without his extensive knowledge and 'guardianship' of our beautiful Earth we would be in a much worse state by now -- but now- armed with his FERVENT & URGENT WARNINGS to Mankind to change our ways BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE-( not to go the way of Easter Island's demise0- he has 'advised the World to get together to do EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to halt the alarming throw-away- culture - esp. plastics & debris which has SUCH devastating consequences but also ALWAYS STRESSING THE IMPORTANCE of protecting ALL HABITATS. everywhere..including under the seas. EAdeR.

  • Sir David is an example to all of us !He has taught and entertained generations of us with his wildlife adventures . He has behaved with honor and dignity and he has shown us how important it is to treat our wildlife and their natural habitats with respect and consideration. He is the GOLD STANDARD for natural history documentaries. He acknowledges that nature is beautiful but also brutal. Sir David Attenborough is a treasure . Long may he reign!!!!!

  • Geez, did you see all of those people in the audience who just had to pull out their cell phones and tablets once the guests were on stage and the lights went down? Is it impossible for people to just enjoy the moment and not have to record some portion of it for some later time when they will forget that they even have it stored on their phone or tablet?

  • Ah yes, Mr. "Too little, too late", all the while enriching himself to the tune of about £30 million from licence fee payers ie a tax. Mr I don't really care about the environment but i'll enjoy it while I can and bugger your and my grandchildren as they'll be suffering the effects of my grand western lifestyle and I can blame it on the world's poor people via "Overpopulation".

    • @Adrian Cheale Perhaps he understands what you do not that militaristic shouting turns people away and does more harm than good. Be grateful that he is educating millions and if he is making money, so be it.

    • @Adrian Cheale You criticize Attenborough but not owning a car, recycling, and writing to government is doing nothing to inform the public. When you start making wildlife documentaries and appealing for protection of the environment on national and international television as Sir David does then you have grounds for your comments. Why is it ignorant people like you always think they're better than experts ?

    • It must be very hard doing all that conservation work with that huge chip on your shoulder. You're the sort of idiot that releases thousands of mink into an echo system that will be destroyed by them. I don't see many of your books in schools
