Named by the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure, risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.

Join him in conversation with fellow adventurer Bear Grylls as they celebrate Sir Ranulph’s 75th birthday and discuss the new edition of his bestselling autobiography, Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know.

Sir Ranulph is a pioneer whose many record-breaking achievements include: being the first man to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis. In this one-off face-to-face, there is no one better qualified than Global Adventurer, Bestselling author and Chief Scout, Bear Grylls to get beneath the skin of the unparalleled stories that mark an unmatched career.

‘Ran has always managed to do things in a wonderfully unique style that somehow sets him apart. Always up and beyond, always that little bit further. Always the leader and always the best. I am very proud to share the stage with Ran to celebrate his 75th year and the new edition of Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know.’

— Bear Grylls
