Fascinating LIfe

Would you listen to David Attenborough's New Life Stories again? Why?

What a fabulous career, loved the book/listen was also great to have been narrated by David Attenborough. Any one who is interested in natural history I would strongly recommend this, although if you have listen to a life on air there is quite a lot of overlap although a more condensed version, but still loved it
