Notes:
In 1954, a young television presenter was offered the opportunity of a lifetime - to travel the world finding rare and elusive animals for London Zoo's collection, and to film the expeditions for the BBC. His name was David Attenborough, and the programme, 'Zoo Quest', not only heralded the start of a remarkable career in broadcasting, but changed the way we viewed the natural world forever. Written with his trademark wit and charm, this is not just the story of a remarkable adventure, but of the man who made us fall in love with the natural world, and who is still doing so today.
Subject/Genre Attenborough, David, 1926-

Reviews
As with all David Attenborough books this is very readable and interesting. It also shows how the world has changed since 1950s, how the making of natural history programmes for television has changed and how the functions of zoos have changed.
