/ old video of Comes the Dervish - BBC?
Does anyone have any recollection of the vid I remember, so I might have more luck looking through archives for it?
Might have been: -
Equinox - Fear of falling. Fliss Butler climbing?
That sounds like it!
Next predicable question - anyone have a copy or know where I could find it online?
That was "Lakeland Rock" in the mid 80s, the route was Empire from memory
Yeah, it was definitely Channel 4 - Fear of Falling: with Fliss Butler climbing CTD.
It also has a good section with Simon Nadin climbing Beau Geste which can be viewed here:
If you get hold of a copy of the Fliss Butler section I'd like to see it.
I do hope the great man isn't really standing on the pebble!!
If I find it I will be sure to post it here :)
Thanks for the leads!
I've still got the whole episode on a VHS tape in the loft, I think - anyone want to pay for me to put it onto DVD?
Assuming it is still readable...
