Tim Emmett and Dave MacLeod attempted a new route on Sron Uladail in Harris in august 2010. They did it live on TV on BBC Scotland - the result? Over five hours of nail-biting television, a new E9 7b and a race against time to finish before the broadcast's scheduled end - the DVD set includes the Director's cut with a load of previously unseen and unheard material. The Great Climb was the BBC's first live climbing outside broadcast since 1967 featured ascents of 'the Old Man of Hoy' where three pairs of climbers: Bonington and Patey repeated their original route, whilst two new lines were climbed, by Joe Brown and Ian McNaught-Davis, and by Pete Crew and Dougal Haston the original was watched by around 15 million people.
