Acclaimed actor and Oscar-winning director Richard Attenborough, whose film
career on both sides of the camera spanned 60 years, has died.

The actor’s son, Michael Attenborough told the BBC that his father died Sunday,
after having been in poor health for some time.

In March 2013, in light of his deteriorating health, Attenborough moved into a
nursing home in London.
