Sir David Attenborough to deliver high profile lecture

05 July 2013

Sir David AttenboroughBritain’s best-known natural history film-maker, Sir David Attenborough, will be delivering this year’s Hadyn Ellis Distinguished Lecture, the sixth in the series.

Sir David’s career as a naturalist and broadcaster has spanned nearly five decades, and he has produced several landmark BBC series, which have introduced millions of people to the wonders of the natural world.

Sir David’s lecture (18th September, 2013) will centre on archival film about naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace’s ocean voyage to the Malay Archipelago and his pioneering observations of the bird of paradise. Sir David has described Welsh-born Wallace as "one of the greatest of all field naturalists".

His lecture marks the start of a series of University events to mark the centenary of Wallace’s death in 1913, which includes a free Public Lecture series, organised by the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences.

The Hadyn Ellis Distinguished Lecture Series was established in memory of Professor Hadyn Ellis CBE, who made a significant contribution towards establishing the discipline of cognitive neuropsychiatry and was instrumental in establishing Cardiff as one of the leading research universities in the UK.
