The issue was continually raised leading up to Christmas with Attenborough in the limelight promoting his most recent film – The Bachelor King 3D. Whilst on Sky News the idea of the show misleading viewers was brought up again. Talking generally about wildlife film making Sir David said “Sometimes you will film one animal, then take another and cut the two together,” continuing, “Sometimes you film one scene this year and another scene next year.”
He really wanted to stress that “making natural history film is an art”, something, which maybe people forget. It’s about portraying a story accurately and if we want to see these processes as they really are, then maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to jump on, and challenge them when we are lucky enough to experience them.
