Im looking for an old documentary film, probably on a BBC climbing program of a female british climber on Comes the Dervish, maybe in the mid-nineties? I cant remember the name of the climber, but she inspired me at the time and now I would love to show it to my girlfriend who climbed the route recently.
Does anyone have any recollection of the vid I remember, so I might have more luck looking through archives for it?
Many thanks

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?

In reply to Dr Toph: was there also one with Jill Lawrence and Gill Price, or was that my imagination?

That was "Lakeland Rock" in the mid 80s, the route was Empire from memory

It was Channel 4. I have a VHS tape of it.

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'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...
