Real-life action man Andy Torbet has taken the place of Monty Halls at the forthcoming Royal Geographical Society (RGS) lectures this March.

Along with celebrated wildlife cameraman Doug Allan, Monty was originally signed up to deliver an entertaining talk on his latest adventures in the underwater world.

However, Monty’s busy workload has forced him to cancel.

Torbet has an incredible CV

Not to be undone, the good people at the London Diving Chamber have arranged for fellow Fourth Element team member Andy to speak on his ‘Extreme Adventures in Diving.’

Torbet has a degree in Zoology, spent 10 years as a paratrooper in the British Forces and has an incredible CV that includes extreme diver, climber and adventure sportsman.

For the 2014 lecture, topics will include ‘Operation Iceberg’ (filmed for the BBC), which focuses on the 6 weeks Andy lived on, climbed around and dived inside a glacier in Greenland and an iceberg floating off Canada.

Andy will also be revealing all about that blowhole dive filmed for The One Show which saw him go where no known diver has been before, and talking us through his exhilarating and heart stopping solo dive in The Cave of Skulls.

The RGS Dive Lectures are held in support of the Scuba Trust charity, which gives people with physical disabilities the opportunity to experience the pleasure and excitement of scuba diving and the underwater world.

Entrance is free, but please chuck money for the Trust into the buckets on the night. Tickets are selling fast, so get yours now from the London Diving Chamber.
