3pm at VWA Auditorium, James Allen’s Girls’ School, 144 East Dulwich Grove, London, SE22 8TE. Lindsay McCrae is an award winning cameraman. He spent an extraordinary year in the Antarctic filming emperor penguins for the BBC Documentary Dynasties, narrated by Sir David Attenborough and watched by 8 million people when it was broadcast in November 2018. He endured unimaginable weather conditions and witnessed behaviour new to science, all the while living isolated on an Antarctic ice shelf for an entire winter that lasts eight months. And finally, how could anyone forget the intervention he and the crew took to save the penguins from death in the storm? ‘My Penguin Year’ is Lindsay’s story and the culmination of a childhood dream. An event for all the family, Lindsay will be discussing his extraordinary journey and sharing some stories and photographs of his expedition to film the incredible emperor penguins – from a frost bitten nose to near impossible journeys across a harsh landscape, and being over 15,000 km from home with no way back for a whole year.  This event is suitable for the whole family – budding cameramen and camerawomen welcome! Tickets: £10/£8. Tickets are available from www.village-books.co.uk/events

11am-12pm. Babble Talks are daytime TED-style talks for parents, not about parenting.

From Africa to Greece, women have been key to the development of methodology, theory and academic understanding. And yet they were omitted from records and their roles were trivialized in official accounts. How did these women achieve so much in their field against the odds? And how can we uncover their legacy to rewrite the history of archaeology and inspire future scientists? Buy tickets here. East Dulwich Picturehouse, SE22 8HD.
