Redmond O’Hanlon op bezoek bij woestijnreiziger Arita Baaijens

(VPRO-serie O’Hanlons Helden)

British explorer REDMOND O’HANLON meets Dutch desert explorer ARITA BAAIJENS in the Egyptian desert. They follow into the footsteps of the adventurous Alexine Tinne (1835-1869), who was killed in the Sahara. Her grave was never found. The letter written in blood, mentioned in the docu, was discovered by German explorer Carlo Bergmann, with whom I traveled in the late 1980s. Footage taken from O’Hanlons Helden, VPRO.
