Clear Spot - 2nd April 2015 (Richard Francis Burton)

Amongst venerated British explorers, Richard Francis Burton remains a historical outcast. Why? Storyteller Giles Abbott and Kurdish singer Naworz tell the tale of an irreverent, sensual, driven and daring character who ruffled Victorian values. Burton led an expedition to the true source of the Nile, he lived in disguise for a year and completed the Haj from Suez to Mecca...its a picture of a colonial past with relevance for today.
