''Frozen Planet'' replaced him with Alec Baldwin when Discovery broadcast it.

** This may be due to the fact that bats mostly use echolocation for hunting very small prey. A comparatively enormous documentary film-maker suddenly standing right in the middle of their commuting corridors would be just as surprising to the bat as to him. It's also possible the sound of his voice disrupted the calls the bat was using for echolocation (his comparatively quiet voice would be very loud to a bat's keen sense of hearing)

Perhaps most widely-known is the epic "Life" series, beginning with 1974's ''Life on Earth'' and continued through 2010 with ''The Living Planet'', ''The Trials of Life'', ''Life in the Freezer'' (an indepth survey of Antarctica), ''The Private Life of Plants'', ''The Life of Birds'' and ''...of Mammals'', ''Life in the Undergrowth'' (invertebrates, mainly insects/arachnids), ''Series/LifeInColdBlood'' (reptiles & amphibians) and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8AdMRWOBX4&feature=related Charles Darwin - The Tree Of Life]]''. More recent series include ''Micro Monsters'' and ''Africa''. He has also narrated many other landmark achievements in the genre, including ''The Blue Planet'' (oceans and their surrounding ecosystems), ''The Frozen Planet'' (a more comprehensive look at life in both polar regions), ''Planet Earth'', and ''Life''.

Sir David Frederick Attenborough (born May 8, 1926) is a British broadcaster and naturalist, most famous as a nature documentary producer and narrator, long fondly stereotyped and much mimicked for his hushed yet enthusiastic delivery and ability to find ''any'' sort of plant or animal interesting.

** In his published diaries, Creator/MichaelPalin describes Attenborough "very sportingly" agreeing to record a sequence in Palin's comic play ''The Weekend'' in which a character turns the TV off in disgust upon hearing Sir David "describe insect copulation in great detail."
