Andrew Marr lecture at BAFTA

A History of the World
China - Hulun Nuir - LandscapeAttended a charity evening at BAFTA on Piccadilly in aid of the Galapagos Conservation Trust. Andrew Marr, their President was speaking about his latest book A History of the World written to accompany his latest BBC television documentary series.
I have to say that I went with an open mind and came away very impressed. What an inspiring person.
The book and television series covers an epic journey of over 70,000 years of world history from the start of human civilisation through to the modern day. Influences that shaped the world are explored together with how our ancestors have had to adapt to survive, making us who we are today.
Marr used the analogy of the Galapagos to show how so many of the world’s problems are currently happening there on an accelerated scale.
Watch out for a follow-up series from Marr, whether a desire or an actuality, on man’s relationship with animals. A bonus from the evening was being able to buy a signed copy of A History of the World.
