THE BBC has a roster of seven different David Attenboroughs they edit together to make his programmes, they have admitted.
The veteran presenters are each used for different sections of a programme, rotated at intervals of between 20 minutes and an hour, and are made to look like a single presenter in the cutting room.
Producer Eleanor Shaw said: “Utilising a multi-Attenborough system allows us to keep filming when one Attenborough becomes fatigued, confused or violent.
“They’re driven from location to location in a special minibus with blacked-out windows and are fed from a large trough to reduce overheads.”
Shaw added: “No, I don’t think we’re deceiving the viewers. We’re using multiple Attenboroughs to create the concept of a single Attenborough because it’s the best way to involve audiences in the stunning story of an Attenborough’s fascination with the natural world.
“Oh Christ they’re hooting. One of them must have sneaked an interesting mammal into the minibus. We have to rescue it before they narrate the shit out of it.”
