Sir David Attenborough has said he is “committed” to producing more of his documentaries in 3D in the future. The presenter, 87, said he believed developments in the technology would revolutionise the way people watch television and encourage more them to engage with the format.

“At the moment I think people find it a bit off-putting,” he said. “They turn on the television, but in order to see 3D you have to put on glasses and slightly dark glasses too.”

He predicted that by June 2014 people would be more likely to embrace 3D television as sets come on to the market which don’t require special glasses to view them, such as those being developed by Stream TV Networks.
