Good evening. tonight on BBC1 at 10.30.

:00:13.:00:16.

As international tributes h`ve flooded in to mark the death of Lord

:00:17.:00:19.

Attenborough, the people of his home city of Leicester have also been

:00:20.:00:22.

He is irreplaceable, and th`t loss will be something that will

:00:23.:00:31.

He may be gone, but within the city he calldd home,

:00:32.:00:37.

It is nice to see people do remember him, and the fact he did a lot

:00:38.:00:46.

Over the years, he has done so much, and I think they're fond melories.

:00:47.:01:01.

He always talked about coming to Leicester as

:01:02.:01:03.

"coming home", and certainlx he was very generous to the city.

:01:04.:01:09.

His contribution to the arts in Leicester, starting

:01:10.:01:12.

at the Little Theatre but l`ter in life, the Richard Attenborough

:01:13.:01:15.

Richard, for all of his soft exterior,

:01:16.:01:23.

He could be very angry if we didn't get it right.

:01:24.:01:30.

But for all that, he supported, he was committed.

:01:31.:01:34.

For months, Leicester has bden preoccupied with another Richard,

:01:35.:01:40.

But today, the city is mourning the loss of a Lord, but who wanted

:01:41.:01:47.

Richard Attenborough's caredr in film stretched back to the 0940s,

:01:48.:02:00.

From the 1960s, he achieved critical and colmercial

:02:01.:02:04.

Quentin Rayner has been looking back on his life.

:02:05.:02:12.

Born on 29 August 1923, Richard was one of three brothers

:02:13.:02:15.

His father was principal of the University of Leicester, and Richard

:02:16.:02:20.

We went camping, we went to discover new areas around the county and

:02:21.:02:28.

My first girlfriend, I caught in Victoria Park.

:02:29.:02:36.

Young Richard spent much of the childhood down at thd

:02:37.:02:38.

Little Theatre in Leicester, and in 1942, his love of theatre eventually

:02:39.:02:42.

took away from home and to RADA where his career soon took off.

:02:43.:02:46.

Lord Attenborough even used money from one of

:02:47.:02:48.

his feature films to help rdnovate a rundown centre for disabled people

:02:49.:02:51.

at the University of Leicester after a conversation with its founder

:02:52.:02:56.

So I said, "Yes of course I will" ` with my love for Leicester

:02:57.:03:02.

and the University in particular and my family connections and so on

:03:03.:03:06.

And so we decided to try to design and create

:03:07.:03:09.

a centre where people with dvery kind of disability and infirmity

:03:10.:03:12.

And after the tragic death of his daughter and granddatghter

:03:13.:03:19.

in the Boxing Day tsunami, Richard decided to donate

:03:20.:03:22.

his entire Picasso collection to the museum in Leicester.

:03:23.:03:28.

Jane, the daughter, met Picasso and she loved them.

:03:29.:03:36.

So the joy that they had and the joy that they gave ts can be

:03:37.:03:39.

transferred through Jane and Lucy to other people.

:03:40.:03:41.

My life has been blessed, and my life has been phenomdnal and

:03:42.:03:46.

I think I would like those who knew who I was, to say, "Well, I'm glad I

:03:47.:03:51.

met Dick because he was fun and he was kind, and he was caring for

:03:52.:03:55.

other people and he shared his good forttne by

:03:56.:03:59.

Police are appealing for information after a 9`year`old boy slipped

:04:00.:04:14.

Kai Lambe, who was from Hatton in Derbyshire, was rescued by fire

:04:15.:04:20.

The incident happened on Frhday evening near Tutbury Mill

:04:21.:04:25.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

:04:26.:04:31.

All this week, East Midlands Today will be marking

Today, we have been speaking to some people from Rutland.

We're part of a project looking for the grave of Harry Waters,

:05:05.:05:10.

part of the North Hampshire Regiment, who died as part

:05:11.:05:12.

The project is trying to visit every Rutlander who died in World War I

:05:13.:05:17.

by 2018, wherever they are in the world.

:05:18.:05:21.

Seeing his name on the wall brings it home the
