In May 2015, an extra­or­di­na­ry con­ver­sa­ti­on took place in the White Hou­se. Pre­si­dent Barack Oba­ma inter­view­ed Sir David Atten­bo­rough. Toge­ther, they can­did­ly dis­cuss the future of the pla­net, their pas­si­on for natu­re and what can be done to pro­tect the envi­ron­ment. This inti­ma­te film inclu­des behind-the-sce­nes foo­ta­ge of his latest pro­ject on the Gre­at Bar­ri­er Reef, and some rare­ly seen moments from Attenborough’s care­er.

»On my 89th bir­th­day it was to my con­s­i­derable sur­pri­se to find mys­elf in a place that I’ve never been to befo­re … to visit the White Hou­se with the Pre­si­dent of the United Sta­tes. He was fri­end­ly, hos­pi­ta­ble and genui­ne.«

Sir David, who was sent an air ticket out of the blue to visit the White Hou­se, exp­lai­ned that he belie­ves peop­le must be edu­ca­ted that caring for the pla­net is our respon­si­bi­li­ty.
