Quote of the day

"Jumping on animals. I regret that. Fifty years ago, I used to go along, chase a giant anteater and pull it by the tail so we could film it. I am sorry about that sort of thing. But those were different days."

Believe it or not, this is David Attenborough. As Robin McKie, interviewing him for the Observer, commented, "it is as if Judi Dench had admitted to glue-sniffing." Don't worry, though - he redeems himself with a robust critique of Nigel Lawson and climate change sceptics at the end.
