NATURE | Attenborough's Life Stories: Understanding the Natural World Preview | PBS

Duration: 00:32
Program: Nature
Broadcast Date: Dec. 17, 2012

In "Understanding the Natural World," Sir David Attenborough shares his memories of the scientists and the breakthroughs that helped shape his own career. He also recalls some of his more hair-raising attempts to bring new science to a television audience: standing in the shadow of an erupting volcano as lumps of hot lava crashed around him or being charged by a group of armed New Guinean tribesmen. "David Attenborough: Understanding the Natural World" premieres Wednesday, January 30 at 8/7c (check local listings) and is part of the 31st season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET for PBS. Major support provided by Canon USA Inc.
