The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) is happy to announce BMC TV, the new online video platform featuring climbing, hill walking and mountaineering skills, interviews and action, which was officially launched at Kendal Mountain Festival on November 16th.
BMC TV (thebmc.tv) is a brand new online video channel, that’s a mix of excitement, inspiration and technical advice.
BMC TV is a standalone video site that’s designed to work in partnership with the main BMC website (www.thebmc.co.uk) and the official BMC Facebook page (www.facebook.com/BritishMountaineeringCouncil).
The BMC will be filming all the BMC events – such as local festivals, competitions and seminars – to open up the work of the BMC like never before.
The BMC is also commissioning a whole range of short films on climbing and walking issues from leading filmmakers such as Hot Aches, Jen Randall, Slackjaw and Bjarne Salen. This year, the topic has been all about making the transition to outdoor climbing, so check out the films featuring top climbers Katy Whittaker, Pete Robins, Calum Muskett, Libby Peter and Mina Leslie-Wujastyk talk about their first experiences outside. There are now over 200 films on BMC TV and more being added every day.
BMC TV and its content is part funded by Sport England.
