David Attenborough health: Perfect Planet star ‘didn’t want to leave home’ for voiceovers

David Attenborough 'didn't want to leave home' says producer

National treasure Sir David Attenborough worked from home for new documentary series A Perfect Planet. A producer for the show revealed on ITV’s Lorraine the habitual globe-trotter “didn’t want to leave his home” to do the voiceovers. He explained: “We did the recording form his home due to lockdown and him [David] being in his 90s, he didn’t want to leave his home, and did the recording there.

He rigged a studio in his room and put duvets all over the walls to help dampen the sound and then our sound recorder went down there, took a very long cable and put it through his window.

He was sat out in the garden recording and David narrated from inside his own home, which was a bit of a challenge.

David is the ultimate professional and took it all in his stride.”

At the age of 94, Attenborough is at high risk of the coronavirus virus, but recently revealed he’s had the COVID-19 vaccination.

One of his representatives said in a statement: “Sir David was always keen to get vaccinated, and support both the current programme and the NHS. 

Of course, as well as his family and loved ones, millions of animal fans across the globe will be delighted – this is brilliant news.”

The pandemic may have kept the icon indoors for much of 2020, but it hasn’t stopped him from continuing his work to get the world to act on climate change.

Speaking on life at home, Attenborough said: “I’ve seen the world go by in the natural world in my garden with a continuity and intensity that I haven’t been able to give it for, almost forever, really.”
