RIP David. I enjoyed his broadcasting, even if he did blot his copybook by dismissing scientific data on climate change.
Very sad. Part of growing old is having to learn that the media personalities you grew up with have died. Who's next to go?
Any of us, dukie.
Really sad. He started as a lab assistant and went on to become a Botany lecturer at Durham University. Here's a recent video:
I liked David Bellamy. God bless him and his loved ones at this time.
What a shame. I enjoyed his programmes , such enthusiasm and such a character.
Sorry, I duplicated the thread
His enthusiasm was catching - I have often wondered if the Aussie presenter (killed by a stingray) modelled himself on Bellamy.
"British naturalist and broadcaster David Bellamy described Irwin as a great performer and an excellent natural historian. "I could break down crying at this moment, but I will try not to," Bellamy told the BBC. "He did take enormous risks but he knew what he was doing. It was one of the terrible, terrible, terrible accidents and I wish to God it didn't happen," he said. "He not only captivated Australia and all the visitors there, but he captivated America because he was audacious."
Irwin was no Bellamy. Irwin was an egotistical attention seeker.
Bellamy managed to convey a great love for living things of a great variety.
