Redmond O'Hanlon

Redmond O'Hanlon, FRGS, FRSL (born 5 June 1947) is a British writer and scholar.
O'Hanlon has become known for his journeys into some of the most remote jungles of the world, in Borneo, the Amazon basin and Congo. He has also written a harrowing account of a trip to the North Atlantic on a trawler.

Between September 2009 and May 2010, Redmond O'Hanlon was a guest and co-presenter on the programme Beagle: In Darwin's wake for both Canvas in Belgium and VPRO Television in the Netherlands. In the programme, the clipper Stad Amsterdam re-traced the route that Charles Darwin took aboard HMS Beagle (1831–36), a journey that played a seminal role in his thinking on evolution.
He attended the Science & Technology Summit at the World Forum Convention Center in The Hague on 18 November 2010. Fellow Beagle shipmate Sarah Darwin was another featured guest at this convention.
In November 2011 VPRO Television began broadcasting O'Hanlons helden (English: O'Hanlons heroes). In this eight-part series O'Hanlon introduces the viewer to his heroes of the nineteenth century.
