Do we have something against David Attenborough in this country? First his narration for Planet Earth was overdubbed by Sigourney Weaver, and now I’ve heard that Life in Cold Blood is not even going to be televised in the States.
I got this email from Herpdigest this morning:
Animal Planet just emailed me.
“Life in Cold Blood” will not be airing May 7 or 14.
They do not know of any new dates.
Sounds like they are dumping it. Won’t be seen in U.S. And the only way to see it is to buy the DVD if they do produce one.
Lame. At least Herpdigest is offering the book though:
Or you can buy the book, copies still available.

I hope this has nothing to do with staying PC about evolution on the network’s part. One of the beautiful things about Attenborough’s work is his focus on evolution in his “Life” series. He’s not preachy or stiff about it; he tells it like it is and you feel like you are there with him exploring life’s greatest story chapter by chapter.
