Not Another One Of These!

Its time this dude hung up his camera and gave his deceived mind a rest or took a closer look around him. We fill the landscapes with heat-inducing concrete then instal giant unrecyclable deices to make unreliable energy and wonder why it's not working. Stop making rich investors richer and let nature evolve the way it's designed to.

This genial, sometimes playful (there’s a lot of great historic footage of the young, shirtless Attenborough in action), yet persuasive documentary is a fabulous primer to learn from and decide what you can do to help.

I found it unexpectedly moving, not only for the loss on the Earth, but for the amount of my own life I can measure in Attenborough documentaries.

The film's grand achievement is that it positions its subject as a mediator between humans and the natural world.

There is a whistlestop feel to this trawl through the great naturalist's career, but there is no mistaking its importance and urgency.

You could rename it The Dying Planet, a short, sharp, shocking 80-minute lesson on global heating.

Environmental catastrophe can be hard to convey in emotional ways. The scale of it can be deadening. Hearing it from Attenborough, however, gives the message stirring intimacy as well as authority.
