U3A Meeting: 'Dr Livingstone, I presume?', by Fran Sandham

Critically acclaimed author and public speaker, Fran Sandham, tells the remarkable story behind the famous meeting in Africa in 1871 between the two explorers Dr David Livingstone and Henry Morton Stanley: how their meeting proved to be literally the journalistic scoop of the century, the curious surrogate father-son relationship between Stanley and Livingstone, the widespread controversy and hostility Stanley faced on his return to Europe after finding Livingstone, why the meeting was such a sensational news story and why Stanley's words became the most famous greeting in history.
