Alec Baldwin watches National Geographic because 'I am a grown man'

Alec Baldwin returns to TV Friday (June 14) in a more serious role, as the host of National Geographic's programming block "Night of Exploration."

"What happens is you do some of these, and you are done with it," he says. Baldwin had just taped the season's worth of introductions and was at The Explorer's Club, the National Geographic Society's Manhattan headquarters.

"I don't necessarily want to be a cable channel prestige documentary host," Baldwin says. "I don't necessarily want to get locked into a certain kind of work. I did 'Great Migrations' for National Geographic and 'Frozen Planet' for Discovery."

"I thought I was done with that and then they called with this," he continues. "This was an honor."

It's National Geographic's 125th anniversary and Baldwin will host other shows throughout the year.

Despite his seven years on "30 Rock," getting his first break on "The Doctors" and doing so much TV,

First Details on the Playing with Fire Online Horror Screenplay Event

  • Dread Central
At midnight on October 18, 2011, author and journalist Harold Goldberg launched a unique Web experience and experiment: Playing with Fire, a horror-based script collaboration with three brilliant Oscar- and Emmy-nominated craftsmen. Read on for all the details of how you can participate.

The Goldberg-penned fright script features a bored, disaffected group of kids who come of age as they play a strange, seemingly anthropomorphic fighting video game. Creepiness ensues as the teens try to unravel the terror-filled mystery behind the game.

Those who go to the Playing with Fire website will have the chance to interact with it beyond the features that will be launched each day. Fans can submit their own drawings and trailers -- and suggestions for the script as well. Those who submit are eligible for prizes, everything from cash to video games to Goldberg’s best-selling book All Your Base Are Belong to Us to an eerie dinner with Goldberg.

Is there life on earth after Attenborough?

Sir David brought the natural world to the TV generation. But now that every corner of the planet has been captured on screen, Andrew Anthony asks how do his heirs build on his legacy?

In the beginning there was the word, and the word was with Attenborough, and the word was Attenborough. As an evolutionary scientist, Sir David Attenborough may laugh at the biblical allusion, but he has certainly had an instrumental role in creating our modern perception of the world. For not only did Life on Earth, his landmark 13-part 1979 natural history series, change our relationship with television, it also transformed our understanding of nature and the planet at large.

Tim Scoones, who is executive producer of populist wildlife show Springwatch, is in no doubt of the legacy of Life on Earth and its countless imitators. "It has been significant in reconnecting an increasingly disconnected human population with the
