RE: My copy is signed by the man

Few years back he was at Blackwells in Bristol doing a book signing.  My wife bought the book so we didn't need a second, I brought my Planet Earth box set along. Fought the urge to bring Jurassic Park with me instead Tongue

Am I missing something or are you confusing Attenboroughs? (Since I'm familiar with your posts the latter does seem unlikely.)

EDIT: almost immediately after posting I did think "hmmm, I bet that's what Paul was getting at all along!" Smile

That would have been the joke, they are brothers Smile Whilst walking back down the hill I heard a chap in the queue whistling the Jurassic park theme tune, so I wasn't the only person to think of it!

Jurassic park had a theme tune? Are you sure you aren't mixing it up with Jaws?

Of course!  Once when sat in the pub, we were discussing theme tunes. I was trying to remember the ET theme, but I couldn't get jurassic park out of my head.  I had the brilliant idea of ringing directory inquires (of course) and asked the chap if he knew the ET theme.  He said...

"Hang on....  does anyone know the ET theme tune?...  *muffled voices on phone* no you idiot thats Jurassic park!"

He didn't give me an answer but it made my day Smile

 

Jurassic park theme tune
