Thank you Christopher
Blue Planet II NOT Blue Planet.
To Julian Hector BBC- thanks for the inspiring presentation at the UN in Geneva and saying I could follow up
Here is the rough draft
No peoples have spent more on public service broadcasting than the British. So it Is fitting to consider Attenborough as today’s broadcaster sharing the most valuable learning of all 8 billion people on planet earth. When David started celebrating his passion- the natural world -in the 1950s, it was not an obvious television arena. TV was black & white; traveling around the world was costly; tools for editing detailed filming were laborious. Attenborough became an unique centre of gravity for the generation of media workers who built television as the most powerful media. David kept out of the world of celebrity making, or perhaps more accurately: his teams made sure the celebrities were the animals and mother nature herself.
Today, series like Blue Planet II reach over a billion borderless viewers including more than a quarter of a billion young Chinese who interact their desire to explore the planet, on smart mobile phones. Attenborough’s stories make the case for United Nations sustainability goals – particularly 14,15 like no other audience participation network. Whilst leaders of powerful nations prevaricate over cooperation pathways to climate resolution -mapping beyond the value chains of carbon- the unforgettable evidence of marine life choking on plastic waste and the death of coral can linkin unstoppable human movements. Is this our last call for saving our species from extinction? Search from October 2019: what do global alumni of Attenborough make of 7 WORLDS ONE PLANET? World service has never been so timely, so youth hopeful.
