Haston Documentary on BBC2

A programme profiling Dougal Haston, one of the UK´s most famous and talented mountaineers, is to be aired on BBC2 this Thursday. Unfortunately it will only be shown on BBC2 Scotland and on channel 937 on Sky. If you don´t have any Scottish friends who can video it for you  check out the thread on the UKClimbing forums where people are a little hot under the collar and appear to be pinging the BBC with emails to have it scheduled in England and Wales. The film was premiered at the Kendal Film Festival in November 2005.

He was tragically killed in an avalanche whilst skiing near his home in Switzerland in 1977. ———————————————————————– If you have any news worth reporting please contact Matt – matt@planetfear.com / 0114 2969114 ———————————————————————–
