An evening with Alex Bescoby – historian, adventurer and filmmaker

Alex is a self-confessed history nerd and award-winning filmmaker and presenter with broadcasts on History, BBC, Discovery and Canal+ International. He has recently returned from “The Last Overland” expedition paying homage to one of the most iconic and challenging road journeys, the 1955 Far Eastern Expedition from London to Singapore. Alex and his support team forged a path across dense rainforests, towering mountain ranges and arid deserts travelling 10,000 miles from Singapore to London. Alex’s book, The Last Overland, detailing this epic adventure will be published on 29 September and will coincide with a four-part documentary series airing on All 4 this autumn.  Alex loves telling stories from remote places and his filmmaking projects combine his passion for history and adventure – this should be an amazing evening.
