I had never found any significant human remains before

The human remains include skulls, pieces from the thigh and other body parts, teeth and hair

I have recovered six to seven tonnes of debris, jewellery, documents and money since I began climbing Mont Blanc eight years ago on the French and Italian sides

Only six bodies have been found in 46 years, including that of the co-pilot strapped to his seat

When you think that searches have been conducted for nearly half a century, the chances of finding any more corpses are next to zero.

If the mosque was forcibly built at that place then it’s a sin to offer namaz there. Only a temple should be constructed at that place

I don't have wanderlust. I'm more wander… driven.

I cannot tell you how I loathe packing. Somehow everything you own has babies on the road: it gets bigger, it grows. I should be an expert by now but I’m always in too much of a rush to pack. Everything I want is at the bottom, so everything erupts out.

I saved up money waitressing and then, when I was 23, I went to visit an old school friend living in Kenya. Of course, there were no 747s or package tours in those days; it really was the dark continent. I went out on the old Union-Castle shipping line. The idea was to stay for a year and see what happened. I got off the boat at Mombasa, and we drove up into the highlands.

I'm actually in England, at my family house. I just got back from Holland, Abu Dhabi, and Tanzania. And I'm gearing up for this dreaded two solid months touring in North America.

I was born that way. I mean it. When I was one and a half, my mother found I had got a whole lot of earthworms in bed with me, and I was watching them.

He taught me that animals have personalities and minds and emotions, when, at that time, science said only we did. Later, I was chastised for talking about the chimps like that. But Rusty had already taught me when I was a child.

Personally I was interested in learning about chimpanzees and their behaviour. But for Louis Leakey, my mentor, it was the links with human behaviour that counted.

or me, the window was simply into this wonderful world of the wild chimpanzees, who are so much like us biologically and yet obviously so different. Other people have talked about them being a window into the past, which I suppose is true, in a way.

I always wore clothes of the same colour. I never tried to get too close too quickly and for a long time I didn’t even try to follow them. I didn’t make any sudden movements. I didn’t talk loudly. I was just there. I didn’t interfere with them. I was just part of the landscape.
