* AffectionateParody: Has been the subject of a good deal of them. His presentation style is instantly recognisable, lending itself to caricature, but his earnest desire to educate and inform makes it extremely difficult to parody him without affection.

Pot Black was about snooker, not pool. Explaining the differences in the two games is far beyond the scope of this comment.
Incidentally, he has been credited with popularizing colour TV in the UK by commissioning the snooker program ''Pot Black'' as head of BBC Two (as you need a coloured TV set to see the different coloured pool balls). He was also responsible for televising {{UsefulNotes/Wimbledon}} in colour because it was a cheap way to fill airtime with the limited number of cameras available in the late sixties.

* [[ShesAManInJapan He's A Woman In America]]: ''Planet Earth'' and ''Life'' are narrated by Creator/SigourneyWeaver and [[TheOprahWinfreyShow Oprah Winfrey]], respectively, to [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks the fury]] of fans (don't worry, the non-DiscoveryChannel [=DVDs=] keep Attenborough's narration). The Frozen Planet series replaced him with Alec Baldwin when Discovery broadcast it.

Sir David Frederick Attenborough (born May 8, 1926) is a British broadcaster and naturalist, 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. He is one of the most enduring presences on UK television in a career spanning 60+ years, as well as a former controller of the channel [[Creator/TheBBC BBC2]]. To many people he has long been THE face and voice of natural history, having created many of the most notable television series on the natural world - especially those in the "Life" sequence beginning with 1974's ''Life on Earth'' and continued with ''The Living Planet'', ''The Trials of Life'', ''Life in the Freezer'', ''The Private Life of Plants'', ''The Life of Birds'' and ''...of Mammals'', ''Life in the Undergrowth'', ''LifeInColdBlood'', and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8AdMRWOBX4&feature=related Charles Darwin - The Tree Of Life]]''; he has also narrated many other major series such as ''The Blue Planet'', ''Planet Earth'', and ''Life''. He has been credited as being the most-traveled man on Earth. Recently voted the "most trusted public figure" in UK media.
