David Attenbrough has actually changed the way people think.

Most of the others mentioned are just well known for being on TV a lot

I read that and agreed with it, and then thought about it a bit, and it occurred to me that just the same could be said of Attenborough. :banghead: However... it is what he has done while on the television, and via it, that marks the enormous difference between him and the irrelevances also listed.

It would seem probable that a majority of the British population - and many more abroad - have gained knowledge and understanding of, and sympathy for the Natural World solely due to David Attenborough's efforts. A very great man.

He is now in his nineties, there are no obvious candidates to continue his work. :(

Not before many good people have been besmirched, hopefully he will go to jail for a long time
