‘Earth,’ Park’ go to class

Edinburgh sked a study in contrasts

LONDON — The U.K.’s top annual TV gabfest, the Edinburgh Television Festival, will host master classes from BBC natural history broadcaster David Attenborough and from “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

The veteran British presenter, a noted BBC topper in the 1960s and ’70s who celebrated his 80th birthday this month, will talk about his blue-chip BBC docu “Planet Earth” and provide an update on his latest TV project, “Life in Cold Blood.”

For light relief, Edinburgh delegates can hear Parker and Stone deconstruct their unique take on mischief-making and explore their attitude toward celebrity and politics.

Staying with satire, noted Brit writer, performer and producer Armando Iannucci also is lined up to present a master class, with subjects to include his BAFTA Award-winning “The Thick of It,” a jaundiced take on the world of political spin and a cult hit in the U.K. that just started airing on BBC America.
