The world’s greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, has led an extraordinary life, travelling to some of the most remote and dangerous places on earth. He’s climbed Mt Everest, traversed from the North to South Pole, discovered a lost city and ran 7 marathons in 7 days in 7 continents. He’s cheated death many times, and raised millions for charity along the way.
