Robin Knox-Johnston speaks with Ruth Wishart at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

Throughout his 80 years, Robin Knox-Johnston has never quenched his thirst for adventure. Not content with being the first man to circumnavigate the globe alone on a non-stop voyage in 1969, he repeated the feat 12 years ago aged 68, becoming the oldest person in the world to do so. Knox-Johnston’s globetrotting life is laid out in his autobiography Running Free which he discusses with Ruth Wishart in this event filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
