The Spy Who Stole My Life

This is one of the most extraordinary real-life stories to have emerged in the last 20 years: For a decade, Robert Freegard convinced a vast number of people around the world that he was a British spy. He persuaded people that they were terrorist targets. He told them they were on witness protection schemes. He took their money, and he spent it wildly on luxury cars and exotic holidays. As his decade of deceit progressed, Freegard’s hold on his victims tightened and his grip on reality loosened. When a series of apparently unrelated events finally alerted the authorities to the fact that a number of women had disappeared and that they were somehow linked to the shadowy figure of Freegard, the enormity of what he’d done and the realisation that many lives were at risk prompted a massive transatlantic manhunt by the FBI and Scotland Yard. But the nightmare didn’t even end with a dramatic showdown at London’s Heathrow Airport, since it quickly became clear that some of the victims were still missing; programmed to respond only to the orders of the man who had brainwashed them.

Diving the World

(Introducing Monty Halls) For most divers it’s an impossible dream. To explore ten of the world’s best dive sites in one expedition. To travel from the warm waters of the Pacific to the cold currents of the Atlantic, swimming with dolphins, rays and sharks, taking scuba diving to its limits in search of fresh experiences, the thrill that comes from diving into the unknown. One of the world’s top dive adventurers, Monty Halls, has decided to make that dream a reality. Together with a small band of skilled divers he will spend ten weeks circling the world visiting the tropical island paradises of Palau and Yap, the Great Barrier Reef and New Zealand’s Poor Knights Islands, the Galapagos, Belize and the Little Bahamas Banks, finishing up in Africa with Lake Malawi, Aliwal Shoal and the marine reserve of Dyer Island where they will meet the awesome great white shark. Here is a short clip. You can follow the link at the end if you wish to view the entire...

Climbing Annapurna

This is the story of one man’s struggle against one mountain. The man is Jean-Christophe Lafaille, one of the world’s leading mountaineers, a man who has climbed seven 8000 metre summits, without bottled oxygen. The mountain is Annapurna, the most feared of all the world’s 8,000 metre peaks, including Mount Everest. For the last fifty years Annapurna has proved the hardest to climb, and the most dangerous of all the world’s highest summits. Its fatality rate is over 40%, more than four times that of Everest. Now Jean-Christophe is returning to Annapurnato make his fourth and final attempt to reach the summit, following a route that has only been climbed once before. He’ll be in daily contact by radio with his wife Katia waiting in base camp. They both know the dangers.

Mutiny on the Mountain

Six men from Europe, Russia and America set off for arguably the most hard-to-reach place on earth, with the intention of scaling one of the world’s highest unclimbed mountains, Ulugh Muztag (translated from Tibetan, ‘The Great Ice Mountain’). It’s taken years of negotiations with the Chinese authorities to be allowed into the region. But as they set out across the Taklimakan Desert, and head up to the Tibetan plateau, the challenge is not simply to defeat the mountain: The adventure takes its toll on all of them, and becomes the ultimate test of human nature. Can their leader hold the team together, or will it all end in tears? This is quite definitely the modern-day version of ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’ Here’s a short preview of the film (narrated by Tarquin Cooper):   The full film is available as VIDEO ON DEMAND.
