In fairness to Attenborough, I was involved in an environmental project and we asked the great and the good who'd made noises in this area for some specific support. The appeal was unsuccessful but Attenborough was the only one who sent his regrets and best wishes in a handwritten reply. Also, I've not heard Attenborough being badmouthed by people who've worked with him, which is as rare as rocking horse sh1t in the TV sector.Attenborough versus Bellamy
One bought (was forced under threat of disfenestration) the BBC Global Warming / Climate Change / et al scam and the other did not.
Now, compare their respective careers within the BBC.........
