I’m planning on watching David Attenborough’s First Life and How To Lose Friends And Alienate People

I’m a huge fan of David Attenborough-narrated nature series, so I’ll definitely be watching David Attenborough’s First Life, tonight on Prime at 7.30pm. Nature documentaries go with Sunday nights like cheese goes with crackers – they’re just perfect together. On this show, Sir David Attenborough travels back in time (not literally, I’m afraid) to the very beginnings of life, in search of the world’s first animals, which are brought to life with very advanced CGI technology.

I’ll be recording How to Lose Friends and Alienate People tonight (TV3, 8.30pm), as I haven’t seen this movie. Continue reading »
