KS3/4 Geography - Why I Love Geography



Royal Geographical Society ambassador and second year geography student Alastair Cochrane meets real life geographers who love their subject.

Alistair meets:

  • Dr Rita Gardner, director of the RGS
  • Ben Saunders, the youngest man to ski solo to the North Pole
  • Owen Wilson, promoting cycling and sustainability in London
  • Laura Fry, who makes new maps of Great Britain
  • Tori James, who has climbed Everest

Insights from these passionate individuals demonstrate just some of the many possibilities of the broad and diverse subject of geography.

Whilst watching this programme please note that the Department for Transport strongly recommends wearing a helmet at all times when riding a bike.
