Bear Grylls

On Monday 9 Feb the Geographical and Mountaineering societies were delighted to welcome the well-known adventurer and old boy Bear Grylls back to Eton. The star of 'Born Survivor' and conquerer of Everest was given a standing ovation as he entered a packed School Hall. The 600-strong audience was treated to a sneak preview of an episode from  his new series of 'Man vs Wild' about to be aired in the USA; after which Bear answered questions from the floor about his life as an adventurer. As the questions and general excitement confirmed he has certainly inspired the next generation of Etonians!'
