5.0 out of 5 stars Mountain - More than climbing.., 24 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this DVD as I was climbing the 'Three Peaks', Scafell Pike in the Lake District, Snowdon in Snowdonia North Wales and Ben Nevis And Scotland. As the series had sections on each area I gave it a go. For some reason I had missed this on TV when it was originally shown.

I was expecting a Julia Bradbury type series on the 'ascent' of each peak but after watching the first epsisode I realised that it was more about the mountains areas themsleves then any particular ascent on any particular day. They are a much more holisitc view of the history and people of each area and although there is some climbing this is not the dominating factor.

Gryf Rhys-Jones has a charming style and I found myself enjoying his dry humour and schoolboy enthusiam.

In all - not what I expected but hugely enjoyable for many other reasons.
