This summer, BBC Scotland are planning to film Dave Macleod and Tim Emmett, two well known figures in the climbing world, ascending the Sron Uladail on the Isle of Harris. Not only will the climb be broadcast live but it will also be in high definition – a world’s first.
The climb will be aired on BBC Two in Scotland and on the BBC HD channel for the rest of the UK on August 28. The running time is expected to be about six hours.
As part of the programme, the two climbers will also attempt to ascend five world-class routes in the Outer Hebrides in just five days in the hope that they achieve a world record.
