Sir David Attenborough is a prominent English naturalist and broadcaster. He is even considered to be the voice and face of various natural history programmes for 60 long years. He gained prominence for his work on the nine Life series wherein he worked in collaboration with BBC’s Natural History Unit. Considered to be one of Britain’s national treasures, he continues to influence and inspire a lot of people with his craft.
How Many People Can Live On Planet Earth is one of David Attenborough’s many works. In this film he tries to investigate whether there is truth in the claim that the world is in danger of facing a population crisis. In Sir David’s lifetime alone, he was able to witness the population increase more than twofold, from 2.5 billion to about 7 billion people. If this continues on, what then will happen to us?
