Living Dangerously: In the genre of Captain Scott

15/06/2010 - 15/06/2015, 18:00 - 20:00

Explorer and author Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE delivered the Hadyn Ellis Distinguished Lecture on Tuesday 15 June 2010 at the Julian Hodge Lecture Theatre.

This was also the first of a series of lectures organised by the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Captain Scott’s expedition to the Antarctic.

Sir Ranulph has been named by the Guinness Book of Records as “the World’s Greatest Living Explorer”. He is well-known for a series of record-breaking expeditions with fellow explorer Charles Burton, including being the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis.

In memory of the late Professor Hadyn Ellis (1945-2006), the Hadyn Ellis Distinguished Lecture Series brings speakers of international distinction to Cardiff University to deliver prestigious public lectures. Previous speakers in the series include Mary Robinson, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Sir David Attenborough, and Shami Chakrabarti.
