The BBC is creating an app to highlight the ‘pioneering achievements’ of Sir David Attenborough.

The Story of Life app, which marks the renowned naturalist and broadcaster’s 90th birthday, will compile over 1,000 of Attenborough’s most memorable moments.

It will include clips taken from his earliest work on Zoo Quest through to 2016.

Attenborough said, "Knowing and understanding the natural world is one of the greatest gifts that humans can possess. If we lose our connection with nature then we lose ourselves.

"I've had the great privilege of being allowed to travel and discover the infinite variety of life on our planet and to share these stories with audiences all over the world.

"To keep sharing those stories in a digital age means taking them online and I hope the Story of Life will reach and inspire a whole new generation."

The app is being developed by BBC Earth in partnership with AKQA, and will be available in Q3 on both Apple and Android devices.
