Many thanks for your time on Friday giving the first presentation in our Nicholls Lecture Series of the 2020/21 term. Your talk, ‘Protecting our Polar World’ was both entertaining and hugely informative. And thank you for spending time with our ‘globe’ of 6th Form geographers later in the afternoon. I look forward to seeing you back for a 7th visit in a couple of years time when I hope we might have made progress with both COVID and the Arctic…..
“Thank you Brian for your slideshow and sharing your brilliant polar photos – I can’t stop thinking about the kaleidoscopic colours and the vast expanses of ocean & sky. I am envisaging how I can use these images in my paintings”.
Brian, your talk “Images from the Edge – the Cold version” WAS excellent and very well received by our members on the 8th January. You delivered it with humour and peppered with so much history and factual info which was fascinating alongside your images. Thank you and I hope you will consider coming again in the future.
We wanted to thank you for the great talk you gave yesterday to Chester Globetrotters. Yellowstone is a great place and it brought back many memories from the 3 months I spent visiting the National parks in the USA in 2007 with Kevin. The colours and nature are truly fantastic and the Americans present and maintain everything so well. Your photos were fantastic and we had a wonderful feedback from the audience.
Thank you so much for your ‘Shackleton’ talk last night. It was good to meet you and I have had lots of e-mails and telephone calls from Members asking me to say A VERY BIG THANK YOU for the fantastic presentation and your incredible images – they all thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been looking on your website and picked a couple of talks to bring to the Committee for the future.
Thank you for taking our U3A group to Venice and its wonderful Carnival this afternoon. Your presentation was both interesting and beautiful and much appreciated by your audience. I look forward to your next visit to us.
Brian’s ‘Stinkers, Pintados and Mollymocks’ talk to RSPB Shropshire Local Group, was a superb event. His wonderful photos showing the magnificent albatross and petrels in their unique Southern Ocean environment, combined with his knowledge, anecdotes and enthusiasm, made it an evening to remember.
Dear Brian, thank you for coming to St. Saviour’s, on Friday evening – St Andrews Night – to give your appropriately titled presentation ‘Recollections of a Scot in Antarctica’. A thoroughly excellent and informative evening enjoyed by all and on which we raised a good sum for the church.
Marlborough College’s Memorial Hall Festival 2018 has been many things but perhaps one of the most persuasive aspects has been it’s variety of events. Brian Anderson’s brilliant illustrated talk which traced Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated attempt to cross Antarctica and the amazing icebound drama that followed between 1914 -17, was a great example of that variety and utterly fascinating with it.
Brian has a wonderfully engaging and personable method of presentation and he sweeps you along with his enthusiasm and wit. To support his story he offered original expedition photographs by Frank Hurley alongside his own stunning wildlife and landscape images from his icebreaker visits to Antarctica, most notably to the Weddell Sea, Elephant Island and Grytviken in South Georgia, key locations on Shackleton’s expedition.
Altogether then, a most absorbing and intriguing contribution by Brian to our wonderful Festival.
Superb talk on Monday Brian. Really enjoyed your Falkland Islands presentation and your fabulous wildlife images. Will hopefully see you at a future talk with us.
