In A Life at the Limits, long-time friend and expedition partner Anton Bowring leads Sir Ranulph Fiennes on a personal journey as they discuss his life; from light-hearted to strikingly poignant, A Life at the Limits covers Sir Ranulph’s childhood, misdemeanours at school, army life and early expeditions, right through to the Transglobe Expedition and the recent successful completion of 'the toughest footrace on Earth', the Marathon des Sables, which includes the record breaking and immensely challenging projects - which saw Sir Ranulph receive the Guinness Book of Records accolade as ‘Greatest Living Adventurer’ - while suffering frostbite and risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken
Ben Fogle has rowed the Atlantic Ocean, crossed Antarctica on foot, run across the Sahara and crossed the Empty Quarter on camel. He has presented numerous hit programmes on the BBC, ITV and Channel 5, written six Sunday Times bestseller books and is an ambassador for WWF, Medecins Sans Frontier, Tusk, Centrepoint and the Princes Trust, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and patron of The Royal Parks Foundation.
In Call of the Wild - Ben's first major solo tour - he recounts how, as a self-confessed urbanite, he became drawn to, and so enamoured with, adventure, travel and the harsh challenges associated with a life in the wilderness, from his first adventures travelling across South America, to some of the toughest trials known to man. Call of the Wild will be an audio/visual supported show*
