Sir David Attenborough & The Natural History Unit at 60

BBC Studios’ world-leading Natural History Unit turns 60 this year. Sir David Attenborough joins Julian Hector, Head of The Natural History Unit in conversation, looking at the past, present and future of natural history programme-making and the important role it has played in improving, understanding, driving awareness and changing perceptions of the natural world. They will also talk about the new landmark Blue Planet II, due to broadcast this autumn and last year’s Planet Earth II, watched by over 30 million in the UK and that attracted more viewers aged 16 to 34 than The X Factor!
