Do you know who I am? I am a big star in David Attenborough's back yard, that is who I am.

Television Legend David Attenborough has revealed the ideas behind his next series. It is to be called 'Life in my backyard'.

The BBC, in an attempt to save more of the 30 million it did not pay for Neighbours, has restricted the budget and now Attenborough, the ground breaking TV presenter and wildlife expert, will report on the lives of the Birds, Insects, Arachnids, Reptiles and Amphibians that live in his back yard.

The famous soft voice of Sir Attenborough told us: 'This is a great shame for me, but I am blessed to have a lot of wildlife in my back yard. I have a pond which attracts frogs, and a number of birds that visit, there is a Hedgehog and he sometimes calls by, and the Fox and the Badger always add to the wildlife that I see'

The Fox and the Badger is the name of Sir Attenborough's local.

In a continuing series, TV Presenters Michaela Strachan, Terry Nutkins, and Chris Packham will also film an edition of Life in my Backyard, to be shown on BBC 3, sometime when Doctor Who and Torchwood are not on.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
