Sir David Attenborough and Judy Woodruff at the 2022 News & Documentary Emmy Awards

"Sir David Attenborough, Lifetime Achievement in Documentary Television"

I'm taking a break from the Primetime Emmy Awards by returning to the News & Documentary Emmy Awards. I begin this this passage from this year's nominations press release.
In addition to celebrating this year’s nominees in 64 categories, the National Academy is proud to honor two giants in the news/documentary world with Lifetime Achievement Awards:

Judy Woodruff, anchor and managing editor, PBS NewsHour for news. She has covered politics and other news for five decades at NBC, CNN and PBS.

Sir David Attenborough, biologist, humanist and filmmaker for documentary. He is one of the world’s leading natural history filmmakers, making many landmark series including Life on Earth, The Blue Planet and Planet Earth.
Congratulations, Judy and Sir David! I can't think of two more deserving recipients.

Here is the promotional Twitter image celebrating Woodruff's honor.
