Alex Bescoby Explorer Series Talk
Monday 20th February | From 7:01pm
Mr Fogg's Residence
Our first Explorer Series talk of 2023 sees us welcome Alex Bescoby to Mr Fogg’s Residence. Alex is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, author and presenter with broadcasts on All4, History, BBC, Discovery and Canal+ International. Listen to his encapsulating stories about his travels, whilst enjoying equally adventurous libations from Franklin & Sons in the heart of Mayfair.
Alex has spent a lot of his time travelling, and in particular began his career by studying the history of Myanmar. Alex then went on to interview someone that turned out to be the heir to the throne of Myanmar (then Burma). This led to him winning the Whickers World Foundation award, and gaining a budget to hire a film crew, which was the start of his many adventures. Alex’s last project ‘The Last Overland’ involved him re-creating a historic 1955 expedition, travelling between Singapore and London in a 64-year-old Land Rover.
