Indeed. I am unaware of ANY original contribution to science, whatever, by Attenborough. Attenborough is an extremely gifted broadcaster and that, we can all agree, is very valuable indeed to society in shaping public attitudes to the natural world for the better. But that is, it should be needless to say, quite different from making major contributions to scientific knowledge, which is what Darwin and the other great scientific innovators have done. Ironically though, perhaps claiming he is the "Darwin of our time" contains a sort of perverse truth, in that "our time" appears to be one in which the public (e.g. people like paddo) can no longer distinguish between science and television programmes about it!
