    Coronation street - Cheddar Gorge

    (1965)

    Live broadcast of the climb of Cheddar Gorge by Chris Bonington, Tony Greenbank and Mike Thompson in 1965 as part of the channel’s World of Sport programm. Instead of a crafted edited film of the ascent -with close-ups, angled shots, and varied camera positions- the action was captured as it happened. Stationary cameras were trained on the movements of the climbers and the subsequent footage was edited live for the broadcast. Ned Kelly, a producer for Television Wales and West, originally proposed a climb of the Avon Gorge, but this was not chosen for aesthetic reasons.

    Chris Bonington - The Everest years

    Allen Jewhurst (1987)

    Everest is beyond all but a few of us. It's nothing complicated that leads Chris Bonington back to the Himalayas as one of the world's most respected mountaineers - just a simple overwhelming love of mountains and rock-climbing, and a mind clearly focused on what he does supremely well. The sublime heights and deep tragedies that come with tackling the world's most awesome challenges, the exultation of the summits and the loss of dearest friends, are witnessed in this film. Both a record of some of the most remarkable achievements in climbing, and a tale of a family and a home in the English Lake District, the contrast between these twin sides of the man has led to a heartfelt life powerfully lived.
