The BBC will mark Sir David Attenborough’s 90th birthday with a one-off programme.

Veteran broadcaster Sir David will turn 90 next May, and the corporation is celebrating the milestone with an interview in front of a studio audience.

The hour-long special, called Inspiring Attenborough: Sir David at 90, will see Kirsty Young talk to the naturalist about his career which has spanned seven decades.

The BBC One programme will celebrate Sir David’s contribution to people’s understanding of the natural world, and to the development of broadcasting.

A second programme with Sir David has also been announced for next year looking bioluminescence - light made by living things.
