Steve commented on the video on his Petzl Blog:
"Last year ...the BBC made a good little film of me trying a route at Malham cove, a link between Bat Route, Rainshadow and Overshadow, but with quite a lot of new climbing. There was to be only one day of filming and I'd been holding off, hoping to get the moment of success on camera. First go I gave it everything, the camera spurring me on to glory. I got to within three moves, half a metre. Close but absolutely no cigar.
The BBC were happy, it was all a bit more than they'd expected anyway. Second go was even closer, better conditions now but tired from the first effort. The last move! Close enough to be satisfied I'd do it another day, though when that day would come was anyone's guess.
It came soon, and the same camera man was there, Alistair Lee, maker of many a fantastic film such as Psyche and Asgard Project. He filmed it again, not for TV this time, but just for himself, cos he likes doing that sort of thing!"
