Sir Ranulph is a record-breaking explorer, whose on foot expeditions to the furthest reaches of the earth have pushed the limits of human exploration and challenged Fiennes to overcome his greatest fear: heights. A surprising fear for an experienced mountaineer, Fiennes admits his fear is so great, he’d rather send his wife up a ladder to clean the gutters.

Launching his latest book ‘Fear’ the talk engages with Fiennes’ personal experiences of fear, what it is, why we experience it and how he has overcome his own.
