    Various locations - not all Edinburgh. I fancy this:

    Felicity Aston – Pole of Cold: A Journey To Chase Winter
    24th January @ 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm
    "“What does winter mean to you?” This was the question that Felicity and her team sought to answer as they travelled more than 35,000km from the UK across Scandinavia and Siberia. Using images, stories, film footage and sounds gathered during the expedition, Felicity describes the people and places the team experienced as they headed into some of the most extreme winter climates in the world, including the Pole of Cold."

    @SallyHinch, this one is in Dumfries and sounds ace: "In February 2017, Charlie Walker began a 9,000km triathlon spanning the length of the perceived border between Europe and Asia, from the midwinter snowfields of the Russian arctic to the Bosporus in Istanbul.‘Following the Line’ was an 8-month endurance feat. However, much more than that, it was an exploration into what it means to be Asian or European, what divides or unites the peoples on either side of the line, and the diversity of landscape, environment, religion and culture along the border that has traditionally demarcated East and West."

    My dad is a fellow of the RSGS and attends all their talks - he says they are consistently excellent. Despite his exhortations I've not made it along to one yet.

    I've been to several and they were all dead good.
