Sir David Attenborough has revealed that he is launching a series of shows in Australia.

The 85-year-old natural history presenter, who is best known for television documentaries such as The Blue Planet and Frozen Planet, is scheduled to appear live on stage in Sydney and Melbourne later this year.

According to AAP, the shows will be called Sir David Attenborough - A Life on Earth and during the performances, fans will hear a first-hand account of his life and career.

The shows will kick off in Sydney's State Theatre on Friday, August 10 and on Saturday, August 11. It will then move to Regent Theatre in Melbourne on Friday, August 17 and Saturday August 18.

Attenborough's career as both a broadcaster and a naturalist has spanned nearly six decades and he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1985.

In December last year, he was forced to defend Frozen Planet after the BBC was accused of misleading viewers by shooting the birth of a polar bear cub inside a man-made animal park.

Attenborough insisted that the decision was taken for the "safety" of the animal and the crew.
