  1. They are back on the Tele!

    For anyone who followed the British Army's attempt to summit Everest via it's notorious West Ridge route, the documentary that followed the Main Team during their 3 months in Nepal, Tibet and on the Mountain, will be shown in November.

    There are 5 half hour episodes being shown on the 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th of November at 9:30pm each night on Bravo TV ( satellite channel ) and if you miss any of these episodes, they will be shown again in succession on Saturday the 18th November from 9:00pm through to 11:30.

    The story follows them through the build of the exped. the training, the logistics, the personal ups and downs and day to day life above 5000m. With much footage filmed by the climbers themselves, in some spectacular locations, it is a realistic and at times hilarious account of what goes into an exped of this size and what the Army set out to acheive through it.

    I know there was a lot of chat during the expedition. Hopefully the documentary will answer a few of those debates.
