In reply to GM4TOE:
Thanks Barry, sounds good I trust this is on national TV.
Remember the televised climbs of the 70’s and 80’s with Bonington, Whillians, Brown, Clough and co. Made for thrilling viewing. Two particular climbs spring to mind the Cheddar Gorge and the Old Man of Hoy with Zoe and Joe. The live broadcast contained many swear words as Zoe was covered in the horrible, sticky and smelly stuff from the Fulmars.
I also seem to recll a climb in the Glen Coe area with Hamish. The BBC had to release the helecopter to assist in a rescue. Are you, or anyone else, able to shed light on this event. Memory tells me it was around 1971 / 72 time and Stafford MRT assisted on the rescue.
Look forward to an interestng afternoons viewing. May even have a trip up
