David Attenborough's favourite wildlife moments unveiled

29th September 2009

Sir David Attenborough will share his favourite television wildlife moments in a new archive of natural history video footage from the BBC.

The veteran broadcaster, whose new book Life Stories will be published on October 1st, has chosen 50 clips to be included on the Wildlife Finder website.

Among Sir David's favourite moments are the deadly encounter between chimpanzees and colobus monkeys in Trials Of Life, the spitting cobra captured in Life In Cold Blood and Planet Earth's famous courtship display by a male bird of paradise.

'For me they represent not only a walk down memory lane but also a snapshot of the incredible diversity of life on Earth,' the 83-year-old commented.

The Wildlife Finder website currently holds more than 500 iconic clips from 30 BBC wildlife series, with more to be added as the project continues.

Earlier this year, Sir David appeared on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, where he spoke about the dangers of climate change and the possibility that the Yeti could exist.
