Following on from last year’s successful BBC 4 documentary “Life of a Mountain – Scafell Pike”, Terry Abraham has spent the 2015/2016 seasons shooting around Blencathra, otherwise known as Saddleback Mountain, in the North of the Lake District.
Flying Glass has just wrapped on the production after it provided the remote aerial filming services for the production, shooting on two different drones. This involved early mornings and late nights during all four seasons in this spectacular area.
Below, a clip from the winter segment of “Life of a Mountain – Blencathra” that Flying Glass shot in the snow in early 2016.
The film will predominantly feature many of the locals who reside in the area along with a few well-known faces from the outdoors world and media. Examples include TV Presenter and Filmmaker Eric Robson revealing little-known literary insights while exploring the remote parts of this popular fell. TV Researcher and Mountain Guide David Powell-Thompson will take viewers along the notorious Sharp Edge in the company of Stuart Marconie and Ed Byrne.
The charities ‘Friends of the Lake District’ and ‘Friends of Blencathra’ will reveal the work and care that goes into maintaining the special qualities of this landscape along with past and present ownership issues and Oli Reed, Associate Editor from the UK’s most popular hillwalking magazine ‘Trail’ will share his thoughts on the mountain and it’s popularity with the public.
