I thought it could have been much longer, actually. Interesting archive footage - makes you wonder what else is tucked away and seldom sees the light of day.

Thank you so much for posting. Would never have seen this.

In reply to Magenta: Cheers for posting.

Agreed could have been much longer. Especially seeing Dick Renshaw was especially interesting since it's a name that before only existed in Boardman and Tasker' writing.

In reply to Kevin Woods:

Yes, an intriguing character. His reflection on them wanting to go back after K2 was interesting: "You'd think after that you would back away but it was as though each of us was hell bent on almost self-destruction..." And Joe Tasker on going back: "We just feel that there's no way we can stop ourselves." The interviewer seemed incredulous!
