In North Yorkshire, having driven up through a downpour, as shown on the BBC website. On the way, caught Pick of the Week, and was directed to the programme made by Emily Ainsworth, who won the Royal Geographical Society's JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME grant.
She got £4,000, broadcast training from the BBC, and the chance to train as a performer at one of Mexico's family-run outfits.
Journey of a Lifetime is an account of her adventures with Don Humberto's circus, including a terrifying moment in Cuernavaca when four metal towers collapsed on top of the riggers who were setting up the big top. "I hope I never see anything like that ever again," she wrote at the time. "There was complete silence for about two minutes, and we thought everyone was dead. It was only when Don Humberto exhausted every single expletive that we realised that no one had been killed."You can LISTEN AGAIN to the programme.
Was delayed through the Fens by a lot of tractors - loads of combines at work too trying to get the harvest in.
Tomorrow, I FINALLY start my new job at the Geographical Association. It seems like a long time since the day when I got the job (perhaps because it is...) and have been doing various projects to hopefully help me hit the ground running.
Also appear in details for the Brighton and Hove CPD Network, led by Graham Goldup and Maria Larkin from Cardinal Newman Catholic school in Hove.
