Now it is difficult to imagine television without it, and with the creation of nature films, he has created a new genre that has completely integrated with his personality and voice in recent decades. Today David Attenborough is 95 years old and still manages to admire the world.

David Attenborough, nature’s greatest storyteller, had become the conscience of the world – some might even hope for a savior of the world – by the age of 95. But last year’s high-impact movie is Life on this planet (Life on Our Planet) recently appeared on Netflix colors of life (Life in Color) This time it doesn’t trigger anxiety and regret, but curiosity and amazement in the scenes.

Attenborough now really wants to show off something we haven’t seen yet – either because we haven’t seen it, or because our perception (including not just our senses but technology) wasn’t enough to see it. And while he shows amazing shots again, he also subtly indicates that the world is not revolving around us and that we only live in our own bubbles anyway, in captivity of our senses, that we only think of things from our photographed world. , And the reality of our planet is much more complex than we imagine it to be. (This aspect is somewhat reminiscent of the great success Reality bubble Brainstorming book.)

Attenborough is able to look at the world in a way that also knows how much he cannot see. Plus the fact that what you see is just a lucky observer. “The splendor of color in a thriving English meadow is striking to most. But you don’t want to impress us with this,” he says, walking among the flowers in Part One, instantly splitting our people-centered view of the world into pieces. After all, these colors, smells, and shapes are not for us, but for bees, beetles and butterflies, with messages designed specifically for them.

The 95-year-old TV legend’s enthusiasm for not only nature but also technology is limitless. This last mini-series is also the result of technical exploits, and this aspect is very certain this time as the entire third episode is dedicated to special cameras and cinematography techniques that have created amazing shots: The images that help the viewer understand this world don’t necessarily look the way they see it.

The new Attenborough series puts the man in his faults in front of and behind the camera. We see how, with some tools, nature filmmaker Max Hogg-Williams can test the point of view of prey: This spotted deer will survey the wild in vain, and they will not notice the tiger because they are blind to the orange:

But we can also experience seeing bees thanks to the ultraviolet camera: on the flower that looks monochromatic, in ultraviolet light, suddenly beautifully drawn runways of evolution appear, driving the insects into nectar.

David Attenborough is able to add a new dimension to intuitions by flaunting their origins and meaning. We are used to the colors, we know the zebra is striped, the pheasant is decorated, and the flamingos are pink. But these colors and shapes, which the series’ camera scans with such pleasure, serve life, remaining in its infinite variety. Attenborough explains: Our point of view may be admiration or astonishment, but flowers, fish, and mammals are not shown in order to entertain their colors, but because evolution, in its infinite ingenuity, has praised these traits and traits more than others, are able to continue in life. Of course, we still do very well to be amazed. And the colors of life It brings the usual look of Attenborough in the field, and with the musical background we get full stories of animal life presented: Thanks to human eyes, imagination and creativity, the Wild West fight will be funny from a fight of two strawberries.

Perhaps one can also see some symbolism in the fact that David Attenborough forgot his colors at the age of 95. It is now difficult to imagine television without him, for example, because televisions are starting to appear in homes around the time his television career began. And while his premieres could barely be seen on a few thousand on vibrant screens – black and white of course – he later switched to BBC 2 for color broadcasting – and Attenborough was unable to take advantage of the new interface. By making nature films, he has created a new genre that has completely integrated with his character and voice in recent decades.

Attenborough was born in 1926, nearly two weeks after the Queen, the second. Like Elizabeth, she became a kind of sure-footed fist, a stable and credible point of reference in an often chaotic world. (Both are particularly good by the way, and Attenborough actually has the youngest Windsor you have a call.)

But Attenborough was for a long time more than just a British national treasure. According to last year’s survey, in fact It is the most popular In Britain, but he managed to break an Instagram record without any effort when he finally decided to join, and even Sunday times It was able to slow down the internet in China because a lot of people were trying to download The second blue planet-t.

colors of life It’s a lot more like an Attenborough front-runner than a late-bloomer, and it plays spectacularly rather than filling-in. Superstar TV has been criticized several times in the past for ruling out the human factor, the risks human poses to wildlife, and the devastation it has already caused from its high-impact films, and may have played a role in people not taking the photo. The climate crisis is serious enough.

No matter how much we appreciate his past work, David Attenborough is certainly now acting as an indisputable authority on the climate crisis, but he still does so in his own way, by building trust and easily accessible thinking. Many people may turn to one of their natural movies because their voice makes them comfortable to learn and ensures high quality. Nevertheless, Attenborough has found a way to communicate the importance of preserving the planet and its living environment with patience and credibility, making his message inevitable. It does not educate, but it does lead to confessions.

Attenborough In the colors of life This time he does not grieve, but he celebrates the amazing life and creativity that evolution does its best to preserve life. As our daily life becomes more and more cramped, it provides an impressive and tempting escape route.

But in the meantime, on David Attenborough’s 95th birthday, a question rages within us: Will we be able to see these many miracles even when he can no longer show them to us?

Sir David Attenborough begs us to pull ourselves together

The most famous nature filmmakers are starting to show the world in black and white, so that after seven decades, the streaks of images are no longer gray due to the limitations of technology, but because we have been stabbed. Not a little, too much. Sir David Attenborough appears with an ultimatum inserted in a horror movie in his latest Netflix production.
