Everyone's favourite broadcasting legend is currently roaming the grounds of Clare College Cambridge, his alma mater.

When asked why he was filming in college, the Alumni team just said, mysteriously, "He is very fond of Clare". It doesn't seem he's filming a documentary on Cantabs, sadly.

What a man

Though he does not like the term, Attenborough is undoubtedly one of Britain's greatest national treasures – he even made the BBC's 100 Greatest Britons list in 2002. Aged 91, he is the only person in the world to have won won BAFTAs for programmes in black and white, colour, HD, 3D and 4K.

If he's your hero, now's your chance!
