Ever wanted to “Meet the Fogles”? CMCI academic Dr Richard Howells did just that when he conducted an on-stage interview with adventurer and TV presenter Ben Fogle, along with Ben’s father, the media vet and author Bruce.
Ben has rowed the Atlantic, crossed Antarctica on foot, run across the Sahara and crossed the Empty Quarter on a camel. He has presented numerous hit programmes on the BBC, ITV and Channel 5, and writes regularly for the Sunday Telegraph.
The event was part of the Arundel Festival in West Sussex, and after the interview Richard moderated questions from an audience of over 200 people. The proceedings concluded with Ben and Bruce signing copies of their latest books –before father and son left to appear at the Cheltenham Literature Festival the following day.
