Sydney, Australia- Escapade Media has secured worldwide rights, outside of the UK, to Steve Backshall: The Vertical Milea, a new three-part factual series that shows Steve Backshall facing his most personal challenge to date- climbing the north face of the Eiger.
This project offers the broadcaster either the series or the live and interactive event. Viewers can follow the 3-day climb via a live stream and through virtual reality with 360 degree filming from the cliff face and daily highlights. Inclusive will be the ability to send messages, questions and see instant updates. The climb will also be available as 3 x 60’ series.
Adventure has never been done this way before, but underneath is an epic human challenge. 64 people have died trying to reach the top of this iconic mountain and yet it is the goal of one our most popular explorers to tread in his hero’s footholds
