Sir David Attenborough has accepted Lateral Event Management’s invitation to travel to Australia to appear live on stage in Sydney and Melbourne for the first time, for a series of public events entitled Sir David Attenborough – A Life on Earth.
Sir David Attenborough is arguably the world's best-known natural history film-maker, a much loved naturalist and broadcaster whose career has spanned nearly six decades. He is the quintessential intrepid traveller, sometimes changing continents mid-sentence.
Sir David Attenborough has accepted Lateral Event Management's invitation to appear in Australia for the first time for a series of live events.
An estimated 500 million people worldwide watched the 13-part series Life on Earth, written and presented by Sir David. His most recent production Frozen Planet was broadcast in the UK in 2011 and quickly became a ratings success, with the second episode becoming the highest rating Natural History programme in the UK since 2001. Frozen Planet was also a ratings winner for the Nine Network in Australia.
Knighted in 1985, Sir David was awarded the Order of Merit by the Queen in 2005, which recognises exceptional distinction in the arts, sciences and other areas.
Sir David Attenborough – A Life on Earth will take audiences on an incredible journey through Sir David’s extraordinary life, his untold stories, the evolution of filming techniques and his passion for bringing us closer to nature. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to share Sir David’s experiences with the great man himself, in person.
Attenborough will appear for two live shows in both Sydney and Melbourne in August 2012 with tickets available through Ticketmaster.
