Live on BBC Radio Devon

At 10am this morning I’m lucky enough to be talking live about my recent expeditions and adventures on BBC Radio Devon.

Just over a year ago I was invited down to talk about Captain Scott and the International Scott Centenary Expedition, it was great fun – you can read what I wrote about it here. Describing pollen as flying sperm can’t have been too embarrassing, because they’ve been kind enough to invite me back.

If you fancy listening, you can online at this link.


James is a young explorer and adventurer who was recently at St Paul’s Cathedral for the National Service of Remembrance for Captain Scott; one of his heroes. He has just returned from a two month expedition to Oman, studying the wildlife; in particular the critically endangered Arabian Leopard. Before that James spent two months working on a reserve in South Africa and 5 weeks working in the Peruvian Amazon. It’s just over a year since he was last on the show and we’re looking forward to welcoming him back to hear what’s happened in the last 12 months.
