/ NEWS: Media Stunt - Basecamp TV at Trango

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
Earlier this month we received a press release from a Trango expedition in which they informed us, amongst other things, of their basecamp TV. We used the press release to comment on the commercialisation of climbing and how it affects the climbing media.

In fact the press release was a hoax and the image they supplied was a Photoshop montage of the basecamp tent with a TV super-imposed.

They had us fooled... http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/older.html?month=09&year=2008#n45345

When I first read the blog, I was wondering about the porter on his way back from Skardu with extra DVD supplies and whether Blockbuster have many outlets in NE Pakistan bandit country!

All that aside, it looks like the mountain had the final say
