Count me as one of those who's looking forward to this, BIG time. Aye, CT's a good mate and while I haven't met Terry we enjoy a bit of email banter occasionally, so maybe I'm biased.
Comparing the clips we've seen so far to the banal Cairngorm wildlife documentary on BBC4 (or was it 3) the other day though, this looks vastly superior. Instead of a half-arsed scripted voice-over from a faceless presenter with stock film footage of beasties and birdies, we've knowledgeable and authoritative CT up to his knees in an area he loves passionately, sharing it with us; with Terry's frankly stunning filmwork as backdrop/co-star. What's not to love?
And exactly how many UK-based backpacking documentaries have you come across, folks, let alone backpacking documentaries set in the minddle of an Arctic winter?
Exploring the prospects of possibly having this available to view in Montrose post-Challenge in May. Reckon it'll go down well with Challengers! (and co-ordinators…)
I think the exact area up for discussion needn't be defined yet - that would be part of the process of the legislation that would be necessary. Originally I'd thought that opening CROW access land to wild camping would be sufficient, but postings on this and other threads have made me think otherwise.
I don't see it being finalised until after a lengthy process of debate and refinement etc.
For now, it's the principle of wild camping that we ought to support - it's specifically banned by CROW; whether that ban applies just to CROW land or to other land too is perhaps something that this petition is going to give us the chance to define.
As for the wild camp police nabbing Cameron, Hedgehope Aztec, I just hope they let him slip out of his sleeping bag with dignity before they slapped the cuffs on!
