Can you spot Roald Dahl in the above video? As a young man, Dahl took part in our 1934 expedition to Newfoundland. Many alumni have, like Roald Dahl, gone on to have hugely successful careers following a formative experience with British Exploring Society. More recent examples include Olympic Gold Medallist, Alex Gregory, and Everest summiteer, Tori James.
We are fortunate to have video footage from many of our expeditions. Click below to watch videos about Newfoundland 1934, Lapland 1963 and Svalbard 1987.
