David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D won the BAFTA for Specialist Factual. Fulfilling a lifelong dream of the nation’s favourite naturalist, Natural History Museum Alive 3D is the result of a collaboration with the scientists of the Natural History Museum. Featuring ground-breaking 3D technology and spectacular CGI effects, the film was written and presented by David Attenborough and produced by Colossus Productions, a partnership set up between Sky 3D and Atlantic Productions to develop original 3D programming for both UK and international audiences.
Last night’s win marks the second Specialist Factual BAFTA TV Award as a result of this successful ongoing partnership, with David Attenborough’s Flying Monsters 3D winning in the same category in 2011. David Attenborough’s seventh project for Colossus, David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies 3D, is in production at the moment for broadcast on Sky 3D this Christmas.
