Sir David Attenborough is back with a new series, A Perfect Planet, and while he did not head out on location for the latest show, he did record the voice overs from his home. His colleague Ed Charles has revealed the steps Sir David took in order to keep safe during the coronavirus pandemic and national lockdown last year.
Speaking on Lorraine, Ed explained: “We did the recording from his home due to lockdown and him [David] being in his nineties, he didn’t want to leave his home, and did the recording there.
“He rigged a studio in his room and put duvets all over the walls to help dampen the sound and then our sound recorder went down there, took a very long cable and put it through his window.
"He was sat out in the garden recording and David narrated from inside his own home, which was a bit of a challenge.
"David is the ultimate professional and took it all in his stride.”Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
