    4 men, 1 face

    (1963)

    On 28 September 1963, the BBC broadcast a live program of an ascent of Snowdon's Clogwyn du'r Arddu, 'the finest crag in Britain south of Scottish border'. It starred the French Climber Robert Paragot alongside the cream of British talent: Joe Brown, Don Whillans, and Ian Mcnaught-Davis. The program had commentary by Chris Brasher and it was transmitted on Grandstand between Davis Cup tennis and Horse racing from Newbury. Grandstand presenter David Coleman introduced the climb as a TV first -the first-ever live coverage of UK mountaineering. Unfortunately, the action was clouded by rain and mist, and many of the cameras failed on the day of the broadcast, so most of the images of the climb ended being a kind of blurred haze.

    La Grande Cordée

    La Grande Cordée

    Jean Afanassieff (1997)

    French mountaineering after the war underwent great renewal. In contrast to aristocratic mountaineering with personalities like Henri de Ségogne, and professional mountaineering with guides as the emblematic figures, a new form of amateur mountaineering developed from the Parisian working classes: 'cheeky' mountaineering. The Robert Paragot-Lucien Bérardini team is the most striking illustration of this. Insolent, iconoclastic, anticonformist, they symbolise the post-war climbers from modest backgrounds who, caring nothing for conventions and rules, upset the stereotypes of the 'perfect mountaineer'.

    Guido Magnone - La voie des sommets

    Jean-Michel Rodrigo (2006)

    From the Andes to the Himalaya, from Fitzroy to Makalu and the Mustagh tower, on the west of the Drus, Guido Magnone made his name between the alpinist 50’s giants. Old student of Les Beaux Arts, swimming champion, he is one of the adventurers who dared to storm the edge of the world. In these times, this exploit was as a walk towards the first steps on the moon. Today, Guido is 80, and is still fond of challenges. His memories always give him the great shiver. He tells us about the terrible winds on the argentinean Patagonia, the sherpas fascination for the edges gods. He also speaks of his fight at the head of the UCPA, so that sport and nature pleasures can be transmitted.
