Benedict Allen: Ultimate Explorer
University Of Aberdeen
The adventurer-explorer talks about his recent adventures in Papua New Guinea, in which he missed a flight and everyone feared he'd gone missing.
In a brand new show, adventurer-explorer Benedict Allen tells the whole unvarnished truth of his most recent adventure – a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, during which he filmed his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier – when he hit the headlines after failing to turn up for a flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family, and eventually the world media, to become concerned for his well being.
Benedict will recall the highs and lows of this awe-inspiring trip, tell exhilarating tales from his life as an explorer and show never-before-seen material from his travels across the globe.
