Review: Attenborough's Life Stories

Nature Filmmaker David Attenborough's Life Story is Bittersweet

Attenborough’s Life Stories, a three-part installment of PBS’s Nature (8pm), serves as a David Attenborough retrospective of sorts, with Mr. Attenborough himself the genial host for a tour of his long career as a maker of nature programs.

His perspective, as would be expected, is invaluable, but it is also bittersweet. We see an amazing advance in the quality of nature film making since his early work in the 1950s, but we also see over that time span an assault on wildlife and its habitats all over the globe.
