Sheffield Doc/Fest was absolutely thrilled to welcome world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough to the 2016 Festival. Long established as the world’s leading natural history documentarian and presenter, Sir David’s long and celebrated career has also included the highest-level work off screen, as Controller of BBC2, and Director of Programmes across the BBC. He has been responsible for commissioning many innovative titles over the years, including the 13 part documentary television series The Ascent of Man. In 1966 he oversaw the introduction of colour television to Britain and in 1969 was responsible for clearing the BBC schedule for the moon landing. Sir David discussed his long and illustrious career with Charlotte Moore, Controller of Channels and iPlayer for the BBC.

A recording of the talk is now available on the Doc/Fest Youtube Channel
