    How You Watch
    David Attenborough
    David Attenborough
    Naturalist, broadcaster and documentarian

    At 85, attenborough is a devout techie. Flying Monsters 3D, a documentary he narrated, combined 3D imagery with CGI to immerse audiences in a prehistoric world and was the first 3D program to win a BAFTA Award. The Bachelor King 3D, which he wrote and directed, takes viewers inside the world of King penguins and is due for big-screen release in 2012. For both U.K. productions, he teamed with Atlantic Productions' Anthony Geffen, and together they are leading an influential boom of 3D documentaries. Next up for Attenborough: Kingdom of Plants 3D. "We wanted to use 3D in time-lapse, so that the plants move," he says. "They look sensational. They always do -- but in 3D, they look absolutely mind-blowing."
