Attenborough reads Darwin

In celebration of his 90th birthday, the BBC has released a short video of Sir David Attenborough reading from the final paragraph of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species:

It's the classic Darwin quote. I read the same paragraph in its entirety at the funeral of my Friends of Charles Darwin co-founder, Fitz. I have also left instructions for it to be read at mine.

Writer and photographer Richard Carter, FCD is the founder of the Friends of Charles Darwin. He lives in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.WebsiteFacebookTwitterNewsletterBooks

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
