Joanna Spicer on Attenborough and Wheldon

One of the great unsung names of BBC TV.  Words about David Attenborough and Dad, from around 43.30 to 49.30 in Part Three of her Frank Gillard interview.

Note that in the blurb the BBC's historians (since Asa Briggs an undistinguished crew) do not know that Hugh Greene had three eee's.  Makes a change from Dad losing his Welshness, not to mention his H.


"When I look back at my time as MD Joanna Spicer, running the planning things, Mike Checkland eventually running the finances, and David Attenborough and Paul Fox, are the four people who in the end stand out for me."  Dad to Gillard
