I don't normally post videos here, but when it's David Attenborough doing the talking, I'm more than happy to make an exception. This man is a legend, and has done so much to promote the majesty of nature to the entire world. He's now finished with big mega-series, but not with film-making. This Sunday, on February 1st, the BBC will air his new one-off programme Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life". In it, Sir David candidly speaks about his views on Charles Darwin, the vital role of evolutionary theory in linking man to the natural world and how the attitudes espoused by the Book of Genesis have contributed to the devastation of the natural world. Have a look at an interview I did with Sir David last year, and of course, at the video below.
