      Knysna Primary School Hall:  08h30 - 09h30 

R10.00 pp (suitable for children 4 - 12 years old)

This fantastical tale tells the story of young Betiswa, and how she overcomes her fears and befriends the loveable Yeti. Deep in the valleys of far- far- away, nestled between snow-capped mountains, lies the quiet town of Hills View, known for its beautiful silver trees. Its happy spirit turns nasty when the town’s beautiful birches begin to die. Having no one to blame, the town folk decide that the culprit responsible for the fading foliage is non-other than the quiet Yeti living in the mountains. Only Beti believes otherwise and, together with her nervous friend Peter, sets off to save the day. Beti & the Yeti is filled with non-stop action, music to make feet tap, and sheer rollicking fun!

The battle of Rorke's Drift, 22nd January 1879. An account of this epic defense against impossible odds. Who would ever have conceived that a force of roughly 4 000 Zulu warriors would immediately run from Isandlwana to attack Rorke's Drift some 10 miles away?  At Rorke's Drift, comprising of little more than a makeshift hospital and a store, the desperate British soldiers prepared a barricade 4 feet high, built of mielie bags, and awaited the Zulu onslaught. A fierce battle then waged for almost 10 hours; 139 British soldiers held out against the 4 000 Zulus.  This remarkable battle saw the award of 11 Victoria Crosses and 5 Distinguished Conduct Medals, and was immortalised by the classic movie "Zulu". It is the largest number of Victoria Crosse's awarded for a single action in history.

R180.00 pp

This presentation initially takes the audience to the South Pole with Scott's party of 5 in January 1912, and talks about the tragic deaths of all the men en route 'home'.  Did they die psychologically when they found Amundsen had beaten them to the Pole by 34 days? Scott's Antarctica rival, Ernest Shackleton is then discussed in detail - his ship crushed by ice, and 28 men living on the ice for 16 months before their extraordinary leader sails 1200km across the Southern Ocean to get help from South Georgia. These are epic tales of human struggle and triumphs of the human spirit.

Extreme Environment promises to provoke fresh – and spirited – debate about the modern environmental movement and the many ways in which environmentalism, media, economics, public policy and the politics of liberty intersect. Globally relevant, but offering a unique perspective from a developing country – South Africa – this book is a must-read for every thinking person who cares about the world we live in.
