Leo Houlding's New TV Series
Top climber takes ordinary people to the edge from Sunday... Plus competition heads up.
Posted: 27 August 2008
One for your TV-viewing diary with the news that Virgin 1's new
series Take Me
To The Edge
fronted by top climber Leo Houlding starts
this Sunday 31, August
In the new series, Leo - and we quote - 'takes five plucky, but
inexperienced adults away from their ordinary day-to-day lives and goes
with them through their own rites of passage on a global adventure to
some of the most extreme countries in the world.'
Here's a mildly frantic trailer from YouTube to whet your appetite and
give you an idea of what it's all about. Frankly that camel scares us
Locations include Kenya, New Zealand, India, Bhutan and, erm, Oman and
features everything from slacklining through to, erm 'sand surfing',
which judging from the pictures on Virgin Media's web site is just what
it sounds like...
Anyway, it's all about people doing stuff they wouldn't normally do in
exotic locations, and about Leo wearing lots of Berghaus clothing along
the way. And to celebrate the latter, Berghaus
sponsor - is giving away
700-quid's worth of their kit in a competition

If you want something a little more exiting than Heartbeat on Sunday evening then this may be worth a watch!
