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.
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.
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!
