London, April 27 (ANI): Sir David Attenborough, the BBC’s voice of natural history programmes for more than 50 years, has repeated his success at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, 48 years after bagging his first BAFTA trophy.

The 82-year-old was honoured for his wildlife series Life In Cold Blood that went on to win the specialist factual category.

The veteran broadcaster expressed his gratitude to “spitting cobras, golden frogs, axolotls, dwarf chameleons and happy tortoises”, who he believed to be the real heroes of the series.

The naturalist, who last won a BAFTA prize in 1999 for a Wildlife Special, further revealed he was still a long way from retirement.

“I’m going off to the Antarctic next, at the end of the year, to look at penguins and that sort of thing - and icebergs, if they’re still there,” the Telegraph quoted Sir David as saying. (ANI)
