ABSTRACT
Sir David Attenborough is sucha jolly soul, you tend to forget he's been knocking around now for more years than television itself. 'Inside, I'm skipping about picking up plants,' he says. 'When you see yourself looking like a limping, bow-legged cripple, you think, "Well, the camera must have got me on an off-day. I'm not really like that."' He chuckles and rubs the legs that are giving him gyp. David ('Oh please, not Sir David,' he insists) tore the cartilage in his knee half a century ago and is now, at 86 years old, considering having his 'wrecked' knees replaced. The problem is he can't seem to find the time. 'I damaged my knee in the 1960s,' he says. 'I maintain it was playing rugby, but my wife insisted I was trying to change a light bulb on New Year's Eve when I'd had rather too many drinks.
