David Attenborough is an icon. The latest in his Planet Earth series wowed audiences with the daily survival of starving lions and the horrific tale of a doomed iguana. Now it appears nature isn’t the only thing that has peaked Attenborough’s curiosity whilst on his travels.

A special broadcast appeared on BBC Radio 3 on Christmas day, playing out a range of field recordings and music that the legendary narrator has collected throughout his time around the world.

“I’m delighted that the music I recorded, all over the world, half a century ago, is coming to light at last”.
