Watching David Attenborough and Wildlife Programmes – Healthy for the Mind and Soul

I've always loved wildlife programmes. Back in the day when we only had 5 channels on the TV, Sunday evenings were dedicated to the BBC's wildlife documentary for that week. I was more than content as a child to sit and watch them with my mum, I was mesmerised by the crocodiles and big cats but always hopeful that the poor gazelle would get away. When we upgraded our TV package to Sky for the first time, Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel made a daily occurrence. When I think of wildlife commentators, the first name that comes my mind straight away is Sir David Attenborough.
