When James Cracknell and Ben Fogle decided to compete in the Atlantic Rowing Race, they faced three thousand miles of empty ocean, stormy weather and colossal physical stress.

Forty-nine days later Cracknell and Fogle were the first pair to cross the finishing line, having pushed themselves physically, psychologically and emotionally to the limit.

Double Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell, TV presenter Ben Fogle and Doctor Ed Coats compete in one of the world's greatest challenges ? the 2009 race to the South Pole - the first organised race since Scott and Amundsen almost 100 years ago. The challenge they face is immense: a 500 mile cross country skiing race to the South Pole, on the windiest, coldest, highest and driest continent in the world; winds of almost 50 and 100mph, constant daylight, temperatures as low as minus 50oc and a steadily increasing altitude up to the equivalent of 4,000m. If that wasn't enough, they must survive each other's company, day in and day out, for up to 45 days. And on top of that, they have to train their bodies to face the harshest conditions known to man, pull a sled behind them weighing almost 170lbs, escape deadly crevasses, stuff their bodies with over 6,000 calories a day, and ski for up to 18 hours a day. Have they got what it takes to win the race?
Race to the Pole by James Cracknell ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For the first time since Scott's ill-fated race to Antarctica against Amundsen in 1913, a handful of teams from around the world have been granted permission to race each other, on foot, across Antarctica starting on New Year's Day and dragging their food, their tents (and their rubbish) with them. This time, however, two hardnut Norwegian teams will be up against double-Olympic Gold medallist James Cracknell and TV presenter Ben Fogle. In 2005 James and Ben rowed the Atlantic together (16 hours a day at the oars, for 50 days). This time, they tackle a challenge that is hard wired into the British psyche: the race for the pole. And in a last minute twist, they will also be taking with them a member of the public as their third team member

The accidental adventurer by Ben Fogle ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ben Fogle has had a life for which the word extraordinary is barely adequate. He has rowed across the Atlantic, walked to the South Pole, run the Sahara and skated across Sweden. He has encountered WWII plane wrecks in deepest darkest Papua New Guinea, flesh-eating diseases in Peru and snakes in Venezuela. He has repatriated East Timorese refugees back from West Timor and filmed in refugee camps in Sudan. He got lost in a minefield in Argentina and caused a 747 to dump 200k of fuel before making an emergency landing in Rio de Janeiro. He has chased armed burglars from his house using a sledge, survived a tropical illness that required two months of chemotherapy and been bitten by a rabid dog.So how did a cripplingly shy, geeky, perenially homesick, spotty boy end up achieving all this? Ben's still not entirely sure himself, but this glorious book will undoubtedly strike a chord with anyone who puzzles about their life, and how to live it differently. This is not just another tale of derring-do and adventure. Rather it's a book about defying expectations, conquering shyness, battling laziness and, just occasionally, winning

Make me a new face hope for Africa's hidden children ( Visual )
in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A team of volunteer cosmetic surgeons travel to Ethiopia to treat child victims of the shocking tropical disease Noma, which eats away at their face. The disease, caused by malnutrition, kills thousands of poor African children every year and those who survive are left horribly disfigured. They are 'cursed' and shunned by their communities, hidden away in shame by their families and often abandoned. They often cannot eat properly because their jaws are so badly damaged by the disease. BBC presenter Ben Fogle has a special interest in meeting these children as he contracted the flesh eating disease Leishmaniasis in 2008. If untreated, it could have destroyed his face. Luckily he had access to the world's tropical medicine experts and he recovered relatively unscathed. But the young victims in Africa must rely on the charity of volunteer medicos who fly to Addis Ababa to perform amazing reconstructive surgery each year. Fogle meets the deformed children whose lives are blighted by the disease and then their transformation as the doctors give them a new face. For them it's a new life
