Regional Theatres Programme
The Regional Theatres Programme was established in 2002 to promote geography to the wider public across England and Wales.
Recent talks include an investigation into the elusive lives of badgers and butterflies by Patrick Barkham, exploring the Arctic and how pioneering scientific work can aid climate change research by Pen Hadow, behind the scenes of the BBC Living Africa series with James Honeyborne and Kari Herbert giving a fascinating insight into the lives of polar explorers through the eyes of women who inspired them.
From topical issues to peoples, places and cultures and exploration, fieldwork and adventure there is something for everyone keen to discover more about the world in which we live. Not all speakers are well known, but they are all experts in their fields and offer a unique insight into our planet.
This spring programme will see a series of lectures celebrating the world in which we live.
BBC Radio 4 Journey of Lifetime award winner and adventurer Will Millard will discuss wilderness exploration through the remote jungles of Papua New Guinea, boulder strewn rapids of Sierra Leone and endangered forests of Liberia surviving illegal diamond miners, poachers and malaria.
