Finding Eden: A Journey into the Heart of Borneo
Date: 04 Jul 2018 - 6:30 to 8:00pm
Venue: Acorn Theatre
Fifty years ago the interior of Borneo was a ‘Garden of Eden’ – a pristine, virgin rainforest where the wildlife were virtually tame, and the people strangers to Western culture. It was here that Robin Hanbury Tenison OBE led one of the largest ever Royal Geographical Society expeditions, an extraordinary undertaking which illuminated, for the first time, how vital rainforests are to our planet. Robin will be interviewed by fellow travel-writer Tim Hannigan, and together they will take you on a flight to a world most of us can never hope to see for ourselves.
