Benedict Allen | Adventures In Paradise
THURSDAY 30 NOVEMBER - 8:00 PM
With his usual good humour and enthusiasm, author, adventurer and filmmaker Benedict Allen reveals the full story of his dramatic return to Papua New Guinea, as featured in an inspiring BBC Two series: Birds of Paradise: The Ultimate Quest. Benedict travelled through the swamps and some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet, with the distinguished BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner, in search of the island’s elusive birds of paradise.
Benedict is the only person known to have crossed the Amazon Basin at its widest. His adventures include the first documented journey of the length of the Namib Desert, and he is the only person known to have crossed the full width of the Gobi with camels alone. His journeys are depicted in his ten books (including two best sellers) six BBC television series, as well as other groundbreaking series for National Geographic TV, The History Channel and Channel Five.
