SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH PRESENTED WITH LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD!
We have presented only a handful TV Choice Lifetime Achievement Awards in our 23 year history. And this year we presented this award to a very special person, Sir David Attenborough.
On behalf of our readers and the millions of viewers who've enjoyed his work, we wanted to show our appreciation and respect for the joy he's given us all over many decades of natural history television.
His lifetime's work, played out to several generations of viewers, has made every TV show he's made over an amazing 60 year career highly anticipated and enormously popular. Still working, learning and making programmes Sir David Attenborough isn't just a British hero, he's a global icon.
So it was our honour to present this award to the still inspiring, much-loved presenter and global educator at his home in London. He's clearly proud to still be upholding the Reithian values his programmes are respected for.
Sir David said: ‘Indeed. What I do isn't always entertaining, and sometimes people hear things they don't like! But this is an honour and a great pleasure.'
The 23rd TV Choice Awards, which celebrate the best of the last twelve months in TV as voted by the British viewing public, take place on Monday 9 September. Hosted for the first time by comedy star Katherine Ryan, TV’s favourite stars will take to the red carpet at The Hilton on Park Lane London for the event that’s become a highlight of the showbiz calendar.
