The face (and voice) of wildlife documentaries recently won the Indira Gandhi peace prize. A look at a legacy unmatched, and things he might have done differently.
A still from Life in Colour, coming to Netflix in 2021. Attenborough has been knighted, honoured and awarded around the world for doing more than perhaps any other individual, as one panel put it, to reveal the wonders of the natural world to us.
