Two Clevedon schoolchildren enjoyed the chance to meet a man voted one of the greatest living Britons during filming of a new TV documentary.
Sir David Attenborough is beloved by millions for his lifetime achievements creating BAFTA Award-winning nature programmes.
And last week, year five pupils Lizzie Dudly and Jake Williams of Tickenham Primary School were invited to interview him as part of a new documentary on Slimbridge Wetlands Centre.
The pair quizzed Sir David about his exploits, asking about the rarest animals he has encountered during his globetrotting career, and which creatures have scared him.
They have since been sharing details of their once-in-a-lifetime experience with classmates at the Clevedon school.
