LFTO Preview - BMC's Hill-Walking Essentials DVD...

Want to reduce your chances of having to make a Mountain Rescue call out or get non-hill-walking mates fired up about the mountains?

Get the popcorn, dim the lights and sit them in front of the latest DVD from the experts.

Hill-walking Essentials has just hit the shops and makes the fourth title in the extremely popular good practice series from the British Mountaineering Council (BMC), the Mountaineering Council of Scotland and Mountain Leader Training England.

Filmed in the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands, the £16 DVD outlines the essential skills and techniques for summer hill walking in the UK.

The 2-hour film has been designed to educate hill-walkers after a 23% increase in Mountain Rescue incidents in England and Wales in the last 5 years.

Technical chapters include navigation, scrambling, weather, river crossings, mountain rescue, ticks and hazards.
