David Attenborough forced to endure -18C temperatures in daring Arctic trip at 94

Mike Gunton revealed to The Mirror how David refused to let them take back the oars as he was having a great time rowing down the river.

“I was with him in the boat, partly because I’m directing him but also because he’s out in the middle of the lake, and I’ve got to be careful that nothing goes wrong.

“I was a rower when I was at University, so I think I’m quite good, but he wasn’t having any of it, he rowed us all the way back, about a third of a mile. I was impressed, that’s a heavy old boat.”

The Green Planet: Seasonal Worlds airs Sunday at 7pm on BBC One.
