Banff 2020 Blue Programme:

Spectre Expedition –Mission Antarctica(36 minutes)1,000 miles, 200+kg, 65 days, 3 mates, 1 mountain. Using snow-kites to travel great distances, with massive loads at speeds up to 60kmph, this is the epic tale of Leo Houlding, Jean Burgun and Mark Sedon’s daring dream to reach the summit of the most remote mountain on earth: The Spectre, Antarctica.

The High Road(18minutes)Nina Williams is drawn to climbing the most beautiful lines… which also happen to be the tallest. Nina specialises in highball bouldering –climbing tall boulders of extreme difficulty, without a rope –which combines the physicality of bouldering with the mental discipline of free soloing. Watch in awe as she flexes her guns and tests her nerves well into the no-fall zone.

The Frenchy(11minutes)Jaques Houot, 82, may just have found the fountain of youth. The Colorado-based French ski racer, downhill mountain biker, road cyclist and incorrigible flirt is the embodiment of joi de vivre. Jaques has survived countless close calls, including avalanches, cancer, car accidents, a heart attack and even attempted murder.
