|October 2nd , Tuesday||Frogner Kirkestue, 7 pm. By request from quite a few of our members we will be showing a British video film on the legendary Sir Peter Ustinov. The 60 minute video is divided into 12 parts, covering the sheer diversity of this amazing man who dazzled the world as an actor, dramatist, director, comedian, humorist and artist. He received two film Oscar rewards during his lifetime for “Spartacus“ and “Topkapi“ and wrote several books, two of which are “Ustinov still at Large” and “Dear Me“.|

Four aspects on the subject, among them a closer look at divine conceptions and obstetrics! Einar is a long standing ANS member and a man of many talents who has worked both in Norway and abroad as a doctor, art historian and archaeologist. He is renowned for his enthusiasm and keen wit as a speaker and will undoubtedly take us on an exciting journey, sharing his great knowledge with us along the way.|
