Tuesday 6th June - Bob Johnson 'The Kingdom of the Ice Bear'

Bob was originally scheduled to visit us next season but kindly stepped in when our original speaker pulled out.  We will still see him next season with a different presentation.

This evening Bob took us on a journey around 'The Kingdom of the Ice Bear'.  We experienced the images, sounds and smells of a four-week trip Bob made in Svalbard aboard the Havsel, a converted seal hunting ship.  While the main subject was polar bears, we also saw photos of seals, arctic foxes, walrus and skuas.  The trip started and ended in Longyearbyen and Bob's images showed us what life was like living in the most northerly town on the planet.

Next time we see Bob, he will transport us to the Serengeti.
