Sir Ranulph Fiennes is credited as being the World's Greatest Living Explorer. Among his extraordinary achievements he was the first to circumnavigate the world from pole to pole, crossed the Antarctic on foot, broke countless world records and discovered a lost city in Arabia. He has travelled to the most dangerous places on Earth, lost half his fingers to frostbite, raised millions of pounds for charity and was nearly cast as James Bond. But who is the man who prefers to be known as just 'Ran'? With exclusive access to Ran, his incredible film archive covering decades of expeditions and contributions from life-long friends and colleagues, Explorer tells the definitive story of an inspirational leader but it goes beyond a simple retrospective, ultimately revealing the man behind the myth.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Explorer is a fascinating documentary about the British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, with graphic footage and descriptions of various injuries as well as some bad language. Now in old age, Fiennes reflects on life, love, aging, and memory. The film charts the eccentric and charismatic explorer's record-breaking and world-first adventures, which include his journey around the globe from the South Pole to the North Pole. Footage of gory frostbite injuries is shown, and there are brutal references to war. Fiennes' emotional life is explored, including his childhood and relationship with wife Ginny, who died in 2007. The movie has many inspirational feats, and Fiennes is a well-liked, one-of-a-kind character who is spoken of fondly by friends and family. The movie has infrequent, conversational strong language, including "f---ing," and occasional cigarette smoking.
