Beautiful Ode in a Film to Helvellyn!

Saw this first on TV and knew I had to buy the DVD - such a beautiful film about Helvellyn (which I've climbed twice, from Glenridding and from Thirlmere, and enjoyed each time) almost poetic in its delivery. Captures the whole essence of Helvellyn and many interviews with people from all walks of life who connect to the mountain. Simply awe-inspiring film, like the mountain!

The best ever

I know the mountain & its surroundings very well & this DVD, bought as part of my Christmas present, brings back so many happy memories when I can't visit due to COVID. Well done Terry - it's a masterpiece.
