Is David Attenborough set to reveal the Missing Link in human evolution?
Sir David Attenborough / Naturalist & Scientist. Attenborough for me is a hero of television, having brought countless natural wonders of the world into our homes. Also now a defender of Darwin's great theory, and outspoken about human-influenced climate change. I especially like this picture because of the ring-tailed lemur - for a short while he even kept two as pets!
Sir David Attenborough. My first personal hero and still my favourite. Inspirational, intelligent, gentle, insightful, thought-provoking. A national treasure and a man of great purpose. A true guardian of the environment.
