Anyone who misses the deadline can still register to watch the free ‘in conversation’ event but they will not be able to ask a question.

The talk, which is for all ages - and which is a joint session between the Cambridge Festival and Earth Optimism - is at 2pm on Sunday, April 4 (see festival.cam.ac.uk/events/conversation-sir-david-attenborough) for more details.

Featuring more than 350 events, which can be viewed online by anyone anywhere in the world, the online Cambridge Festival - of which the Cambridge Independent is a media partner - runs from Friday, March 26 to Sunday, April 4.
