A True Story Re Enactment Documentary style and Interviews

THURSDAY 2nd July Channel 4 at 22 :00 hrs to 0:10 a.m.

"Touching the Void"

An unbelievable True Story of Two British Climbers climbing a Peak on their own in the Snow covered Peruvian Andes.
Roped together they achieved the Peak but on their way back down near the top one falls over the edge, dangling for hours roped to his mate, who alone can't pull him back up.
Top bloke has no choice but to cut the rope, to save himself but kill his friend.
He returns back down to their Tent below, but is unable to come to terms with what he has done.
What then transpires is a Story of Human Courage and Endurance.
Brilliantly re enacted.

Don't miss it !!!

Thanks Al, set to record but will probably watch it anyway.
Im guessing there are some gruesome scenes as when I recommend it to a friend, she said she watched it at the cinema when it was released and passed out, something to do with a dislocated knee???
Can't wait :lol:

I’ll be watching this programme later. Recall a similar documentary, the climber was in so much trouble, but what he did to survive, was absolutely astonishing!
