    I had a search but didn't find a thread.

    I just got my ticket for the 3rd Melbourne show. Looking forward to hearing the great man speak in person.


    Anyone else here going?

    Think it's just Sydney and Melbourne. Both cities have had two shows sell out in minutes. Presale is on now for a third show in each city now.

    There is an effort underway to get Sir David Attenborough to Perth when he visits Australia in August. Official letters of invitation from all sorts of people. It's been kept quiet from the public because the people organising the invitation are worried about it failing and don't want to involve the public in a showing of support.

    I'm thinking screw that sort of thinking and am trying to get a showing of public support via my website at Letters to Sir David Attenborough. Any letters from Perth will be highlighted and the organising committee notified. I know that people involved with the efforts of getting Sir David to Perth know about the website as do probably the Sir David's PR team. We need to show that Perth have a lot of Sir David Attenborough fans.

    There's some more info here. Help Get Sir David Attenborough To Visit Western Australia! | Token Skeptic

    I hate spamming forums like this but I'm willing to try just about anything to collect public support in one place to make it easy for PR people to trawl through.

    Sorry you mob, I'll send him some piccies and stories and he'll be MINE! He'll spend the whole time in the Top End flabergasted by culture and undescribed species! HOO HOO HA HA HARR!

    Wakes up and realises it wont happen, nonetheless D Rabbitburrow is my champion of champions.

    do a bit of research, he invented his job and sold it to the BBC. He is equally brilliant as an administrator.

    Loved the fact that they gave him the reigns but he decided his much happier to be the one tending the horse...
