Fri Film: What Does The BMC Do For Hillwalkers?

Contrary to what you might have thought, the British Mountaineering Council isn't just for climbers. This new short film by award-winning mountain filmmaker Terry Abraham gives an insight into the work they do on behalf of the majority of outdoor-goers - namely hill walkers.

Set in the Lake District, it focuses on the work of the BMC’s charity, the Access and Conservation Trust, in helping to fund vital repairs to Cumbria's heavily-used paths. 

Away from the hills, it also touches on their work in Westminster, and their aim to keep the countryside open for all to enjoy.

'With this film we wanted to draw attention to some of the work we do to protect and preserve the mountain environment for everyone' said Carey Davies, the BMC's first ever hill-walking development officer. 'Join today and get involved.' 

The BMC's hillwalking ambassador Chris Townsend added: 'The BMC's work on access and conservation is essential for the future of hill walking and should be supported by all hill walkers.'

Aside from its serious message the film has plenty of Terry Abraham's trademark luscious landscapes, familiar from previous work such as his acclaimed Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike (see review here).
