I've never had good luck with RealPlayer. If anyone finds a version in .mp3 or .wav please post a link!

This was a really wonderful broadcast. Listen out for the bit about how sloths find each other to mate.

I understand there's going to be 20 of these talks! So stay tuned. He seems to be able to go into more depth in this medium - not limited by the footage I suppose. :)

Excellent! I enjoyed the Aquatic Ape Hypothesis radio program narrated by Attenborough greatly. Looking forward to more!

Well, this is a no-brainer.

"please first install Real Player."

No, I won't.

You don't need Real Player. You can get it as an mp3 podcast.

one thing you have to beware at least on the streamed audio:

When you try the link you may get the end of the programme before the one you are wish to listen to. Be patient!

For those who don't know, this man is a national institution!

Went to a book signing with him about a year ago - queued for ages as he spent about 20 mins with every child talking about favourite animals, being a scientist etc. Was amazing to see. He is well deserved of the title national treasure - should be crowned not knighted

Has anybody saved this mp3? The BBC deleted it from their website and I remember it as a very sweet bit.
