Trailer: Life of a Mountain - Helvellyn

Multi-award winning filmmaker and photographer, Terry Abraham has given us an early look at the teaser trailer for the finale to his 'Life of a Mountain' trilogy. This one features the Lake District's most popular fell, Helvellyn.

The critically acclaimed 'Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike' (2015) and 'Life of a Mountain: Blencathra' (2017) have been enjoyed by millions of viewers on the BBC and in 2020 Abraham is set to release the final chapter in his trilogy. The premiere will be held at the Rheged Centre, Penrith 7pm 9th May 2020.

"I hope people like it!" Terry says.

"A lot of blood, sweat and tears has gone into producing this. I'm determined it'll blow folk away and knock the other two in the series right out of the park."

Is that correct. A year away - 2020?

Will be interesting to see if and how the narrative has changed from his two previous films. Enjoyed the first one, format of second started to feel a bit repetitive to me, guess there's only so much variation in what remains a tiny geographical area. Some lovely cinematography but would like to see Terry turn his attention away from the Lakes at some stage and bring a different mood to other iconic hill regions of the UK and beyond.

Helvellyn offers the purest ridge scramble and most reliable winter climbing in England yet I can’t help finding it a rather boring mountain. Familiarity breeds contempt I guess.
