That is sad, particularly the manner of it. I always enjoyed in his films his almost child-like delight in explaining to the world the things he had just discovered about wildlife.

Yes I suppose he does, although I never associate him with the Carry on's more those Doctors films which were equally terrible.

The Doctor films weren't that bad, at least not for the '50's.
