If you’ve ever seen the film In Which We Serve, but it was about a destroyer in the Mediterranean.Richard Attenborough
I think Tom Paine is one of the greatest men that’s ever lived. He lived in the 18th century; as you all know, he was an Englishman who was involved in the writing of American Declaration of Independence, the American Constitution, the French Constitution, wrote the great book called ‘The Rights of Man’ – commercial over.Richard Attenborough
I very, very, very rarely lose my temper. I do get cross sometimes when encountering something that I feel is improper, that I feel is lacking in justice and equity, and this all sounds very pompous and over the top – but these are the things that really upset me: intolerance, prejudice etc. I suppose in more mundane matters, I’m impatient.Richard Attenborough

If I were able to write, I probably would. But movies have given me a part of my life where I can express feelings and bring convictions to an audience as if I could write. So I made ‘Gandhi’ about human relations, prejudice and the empire. In ‘Cry Freedom’ I expressed my horror and disgust about apartheid.Richard Attenborough
