Talk: Benedict Allen - Adventures in Paradise
Tuesday 21 November 2017
With his usual good humour and enthusiasm, Benedict reveals the full story of his dramatic return to Papua New Guinea ( recently featured in an inspiring BBC Two series) – through the swamps with wheelchair-bound Frank Gardner, the distinguished Security Correspondent, in search of the island's elusive birds of Paradise.
Talk presented by the Royal Geographical Society in Association with King’s Lynn Festival.
