Sony BBC Earth to launch Attenborough specials on 6 May
MUMBAI: Infotainment channel Sony BBC Earth will celebrate the 91st birthday of Sir David Attenborough by premiering Attenborough special stories from 6 May in the weekend slot ‘Earth Specials’ at 9 pm.
Attenborough, who has spent 60 years of his life exploring the wildest species, will turn 91 on 8 May.
Sony BBC Earth’s brand promise of offering never-seen-before visuals with positive and insightful stories comes alive with two of his most popular shows, ‘Attenborough: 60 Years in the Wild’ and ‘Attenborough’s Big Birds’. Attenborough’s unique narrative style seamlessly exemplifies positive storytelling with a completely new perspective on the planet.
In ‘Attenborough: 60 Years in the Wild’, Attenborough focuses on three areas that transformed profoundly in course of his career—film-making, science and the environment.
‘Attenborough’s Big Birds’, on the other hand, takes one through the oddest of birds like kiwis, emus and elephant birds of Madagascar, who look like the court jesters of the natural world. They are birds that have never and will never fly—the ratites.
Fondly nicknamed the ‘Godfather of Natural History’, he is the only person to have won BAFTA awards across formats— black-and-white, colour, HD and 3D.
