It isn’t too often that a TV commercial seems worthy of being the subject of a blog post — at least not a complimentary post.

But What a Wonderful World is an inspirational video.

It showcases the beauty of the world we live in.

Its a great way to start 2016… remembering that despite all the problems that dominate the news we see and hear and read about, its a wonderful world.

This HD two-minute video by BBC ONE is set to the music of “It’s a Wonderful World” and the video gives a lot of visual evidence to back up the musical assertion!

Take two minutes out of your day and be visually inspired and go away humming “It’s a Wonderful World”.

Over 14 million people have already done so!

Biography: Sir David Attenborough

David Attenborough, the Godfather of natural history TV, has introduced generations to the world’s furry and feathered friends.

Beyond natural history he’s had a huge influence as a broadcaster, introducing colour TV when he was Controller of BBC Two.

Born in London in 1926, Attenborough collected fossils as a child and gained a Natural Sciences degree from Cambridge. Since the launch of his famous Zoo Quest series in 1954 to the recent Planet Earth, he has surveyed almost every aspect of life on earth.

Most Renowned For

Whether he’s chilling with chimps or freezing with polar bears, Attenborough always reassures with his signature dulcet tones. Many have tried – and most failed – to capture his hushed, reverential whisper, full of barely contained excitement. This unique voice has formed the soundtrack to millions of childhoods and TV dinners.

Cultural Impact

Attenborough’s trophy cabinet has recently acquired the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, he has been knighted, had species named after him and the Sir David Attenborough Studio is planned for London’s Natural History Museum in 2008.

With warmth and intelligence, Attenborough has brought the world to our doorstep. An estimated 500 million people worldwide watched Life On Earth.

Long before environmental issues were making daily headlines, he was a fervent eco campaigner both on and off screen.

In His Own Words

“I just wish the world was twice as big and half of it was still unexplored.”


Bill Oddie

“David has affected the lives of people and wildlife for many years. With his amazing amount of knowledge, his achievement is to recommend life, wildlife and human life to the people of this earth.”  Bill Oddie – (William Edgar “Bill” Oddie OBE is an English writer, composer, musician, comedian, artist, ornithologist, conservationist and television presenter. He became famous as one of musical group, The Goodies.)
