Among his many studies of nature and wildlife creatures, David Attenborough has now taken up what he says are, "in all my years of exploration, these are the creatures I find most curious." Curlers.
In a hilarious piece commissioned by BBC 1 Radio, Attenborough narrated a study of curling as if it was on of his natural history documentaries. “Here we have a pack of sliding curlers," he intones. "Watch as the alpha female displays her dominance over the herd by tapping the end of the frisking broom to check for rogue insects.” And it goes on from there. This is one of the few times you'll wish that watching curling lasted far longer.
To all those who find the sport of curling utterly bizarre and beyond inexplicable to the point of unwatchable, this may change your view.
