Finding Eden: A Journey into the Heart of Borneo with Robin Hanbury-Tenison


Fifty years ago the interior of Borneo was a ‘Garden of Eden’ – a pristine, virgin rain forest 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 rain forests 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.
