Legendary broadcaster David Attenborough, 87, has been at it for 60 years, and he’s a long way from finished. Attenborough is known for nature documentaries including “Life on Earth” (1979), “The Living Planet” (1984) and “The Blue Planet” (2001).

RadioTimes reports that Attenborough plans to make at least one more natural history series for BBC1 before he turns 90.

The next project will be along the lines of "Frozen Planet," the piece reports.

"There had been speculation that Attenborough would not be making any large-scale multi-part series for BBC1 due to his age, health and the demanding schedules for such landmark programs," the story notes.

Kim Shillinglaw, the head of science and natural history for the BBC, told the publication, “Is it the end of David’s landmark series? God no. He is doing a couple of things for us and there is a landmark in the pipeline which is quite a long way off."

She said the show would likely be aired in "two to three years time" but didn’t disclose additional details.
