Please save the 28th of October at 6pm for a talk by Robin Hanbury-Tenison. Further details of the virtual event will be provided nearer the time.
Robin will be talking about his new book, “Taming the Four Horsemen”
This book could not come at a more appropriate moment, just when the world needs to think and decide whether we sink, dragging down with us all that we hold dear, or swim bravely, and sometimes uncomfortably, into a sustainable future. Matchless man: hugely important book.
– Joanna Lumley
Robin Hanbury-Tenison, OBE, DL, is the doyen of British explorers. A Founder and President of Survival International, the global organisation supporting tribal peoples, he was one of the first campaigners to bring the plight of the rainforests to the world’s attention after living in the heart of Borneo with over 100 international scientists. A veteran of over thirty expeditions, he is a Gold medallist and one time Vice-President of the Royal Geographical Society. In 1982, The Sunday Times named him “the greatest explorer of the last twenty years”, and in 1991 as one of the 1000 “Makers of the 20th Century”.
He has visited and written about over 100 remote tribes around the world, travelling huge distances through tropical rainforests and deserts. Among the films he has made for TV about travel and conservation are some about the many long distance rides he and his wife, Louella, have made in many countries. They live in a Doomsday manor on Bodmin Moor, where he has farmed for sixty years. His many books include A Question of Survival, A Pattern of Peoples, Mulu: The Rainforest, The Oxford Book of Exploration, The Great Explorers, The Modern Explorers, Fragile Eden, Land of Eagles, Finding Eden and his two autobiographies, Worlds Apart and Worlds Within.
We hope you can join us for a special and long overdue evening.
