Video: David Attenborough commentating on curling is as good as it gets at the Winter Olympics
As if the sport of curling wasn’t compelling enough as it is…
Alongside Morgan Freeman, you can pretty much do no wrong if you get David Attenborough to provide commentary of any sort; the man could read the ingredients off the back of a crisp packet and make it sound interesting.
So when the subject matter is equally as interesting as the voice itself, then you’re onto a winner, as the BBC were when they got Attenborough to voice a curling encounter between Team GB and Team USA at the Winter Olympics.
Seamlessly adopting phrases he commonly uses during his wildlife programmes and with a suitable piece of music providing the soundtrack, this is pretty much as good as it gets as far as Attenborough and the Winter Olympics is concerned.
