Attenborough has been hailed as "the great communicator, the peerless educator" ("What Comes Naturally," The Telegraph) and "the greatest broadcaster of our time" ("David Attenborough on Charles Darwin," The Times). He has collected twenty three awards and thirty-one honorary degrees from British universities since 1970. His contribution to broadcasting and wildlife film-making has brought him international recognition, and his BBC programs are considered the exemplary model of public service broadcasting. His name will be noted by the next several generations of wildlife documentarists for his influence.
