Doug Allen -The Changing Poles What do a world’s leading wildlife film maker, Britain’s most legendary young climber, Norway’s leading polar explorer, an astronaut, TV presenters, several Everest summiteers, a man who circumnavigated the world through his own steam, and a round the world yachtswoman all have in common?

They are all giving public talks for the Royal Scottish Geographical Society this winter. With stories from the top of the world, to the ends of the world and around and above the world; from Glasgow to Rockall, from Harris to Iceland and from North Korea to New Zealand to China and the mountains of the Antarctic there are stories from everywhere to everyone.
