Simon Reeve

After a decade spent making more than 60 programmes Simon has become a familiar face on British TV, well known for his extraordinary foreign journeys where he has visited more than 110 countries. Most of Simon's documentaries combine travel and adventure with global environmental, wildlife and conservation issues, and have taken him across jungles, deserts, mountains and oceans, and to some of the most beautiful, dangerous and remote regions of the world. Simon's dodged bullets on frontlines, hunted with the Bushmen of the Kalahari, dived with manta rays, seals and sharks, survived malaria, walked through minefields, tracked lions on foot and these are just some of his many feats!

Simon’s own journey started after he left school with few qualifications. After a period on the dole, he ran charity shops, stacked shelves, and eventually found a job as a post-boy on a newspaper. He quickly graduated to research and writing, and then spent years working, often covertly, on investigations into nuclear smuggling and terrorism. His 1998 investigative book The New Jackals, the first in the world on Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda, became an international bestseller, and was followed by his book One Day in September, which is also an Oscar-winning documentary movie. Since making the leap to television Simon has shown his adventures in multiple award-winning TV series for the BBC which have been broadcasted in dozens of countries, enthralling millions…

Simon Reeve will be speaking at The Adventure Travel Show within the main Adventure Auditorium on Sunday 24th January at 10:30am, followed by an interactive question & answer session. Simon Reeve’s talk and more than 100 other show talks are included within the cost of the show ticket (£8 in advance or £10 on the door).
