Nature documentarian David Attenborough talks to Televisual about his long and storied career and his feelings on TV technology.

"The move from 405 lines to 5K is huge," he says about television's advances. "If you projected the programs I made in the 50s and put them on a screen the size of a house it would be intolerable, but with 5K you can.
