A Lyrebird Moment – David Attenborough is to nature shows as Julia Child was to cooking shows. In honor of his 80th birthday, polls were conducted, allowing fans to choose their favorite Attenborough moment. The winning video clip is available at Yahoo Videos. and the Daily Mail.

Hannah needs a good script – she has too much time on her hands.
