/ Ella Kirkpatrick on El Cap CBBC 5.45pm Tuesday
People keep asking me, so thought I post it on the forum. Ella's climbing El Cap program is on tomorrow night at 5.45 on CBBC. Should also be on Iplayer soon after. Doc is very funny, moving and even a bit scary (not that anything scary happened) and is much more than a kids TV program.
Interview with Ella and more details on the BMC website here: http://www.thebmc.co.uk/my-life-ella-kirkpatrick-climbing-el-cap-yosemite-tv
Also micro website designed to direct kids who want more info on climbing http://ellakirkpatrick.com
Nice one Andy - Little Ent is well excited (so am I actually!)
Looking forward to it!
Smashing micro website link too. Very inspirational even to a middle aged adult.
Just a reminder for those of you who are interested, this is starting in a few minutes.
good show and keeping up the family tradition :-)
gets coat , but wats she done on grit :-P
That was great, now along with your books and her story I really want to try a big wall.
Brilliant, well done Ella.
What route, Zodiac?
Superb narration too. I think she's got a great future in television .
Surprising as Dad has a face for radio :oD
> Brilliant, well done Ella.

I have just watched it, great achievement for Ella and I thought a well put together half hour of TV, really good narration.
Perhaps more important than me liking it, my girlfriends 11 year old, loved it as well.
> Tangerine Strip
I saw you and Ella talk at Kendal, she seemed as un fazed by a room full of several hundred hairy outdoor types as she did by El Cap.

Shouldn't that be Tangerine Trip, or have I missed something (probably, it did look very hot)?
The girl did good! She must have arms like Popeye after all that jugging!
Well done Ella, great commitment.
It was really very enjoyable to watch.
I was particularly impressed by the comment about twenty-one (ish) minutes in, where your daughter rather succinctly summarises the entire event - and anything remotely like it, but then plows on to a free climb finish. Gutsy lass.
Thanks for posting it.
> Shouldn't that be Tangerine Trip, or have I missed something (probably, it did look very hot)?
You are probably right!
Does Ella want to be the figurehead for my kids climbing gear? ;o)
+1, another Lecture in the North East Please Andy.
Really enjoyed My Life
Is it me, or did that program provide far more information than an equivalent would aimed at non-climbing adults?
Just watched in iPlayer - really enjoyed it.
I'm not sure what was most amazing - Ella's performance (both in climbing El Cap and in front of the camera) or seeing Andy not talking!!
Cracking show - well done to all involved.
Frankly world class dad work.
