News Update: Everest

23 05 2012

We’re now into our official Summer Shut-Down – back in September with “The Artist” as our Season 5 opener.

Camaraman Keith Partridge, who gave a talk recently on filming in extreme conditions (Touching the Void) hinted at the time that he might have something “a bit special” coming up…

He’s currently at camp 4 , nearly 8000m up Everest with Kenton Cool, fulfilling the Olympic medal pledge made in 1924. They set out for the summit early on Friday – where they will be broadcasting live on the internet.
