"Compared to climbing a snow covered mountain and flinging oneself off a vertical cliff, swimming with Great Whites is child's play".
Valerie and Ron Taylor

Experience the adrenaline of two of the most exciting and breath-taking adventure documentaries ever filmed.

BASECLIMB " of the best adventure films I have ever seen" Dick Smith
In 1992 Glenn Singleman and Nic Feteris set the world record for Altitude BASEjumping with their leap from the 6258 metre high Great Trango Tower in Pakistan. Nic is a BASEjumper, Glenn is a climber, but both are novices at the other's sport. This is a spectacular firsthand view of the preparation, dedication and sheer courage it took to do it. Featuring footage of Glenn and Nic's year-long training program and the most awe-inspiring BASEjump ever recorded, this is white knuckle viewing at its best.

BASECLIMB 2 - defying gravity
After conquering The Great Trango Tower Glenn Singleman firmly believed that it was possible for anybody who could "jump off a chair and pull a handkerchief out of their pocket" to make the 'big jump' if they could overcome their fears. When he heard of a taller mountain, Ama Dablam, at 6828 metres high, someone challenged his belief.
His wife, Heather Swan, an active mother and businesswoman, had never parachuted, BASEjumped or climbed any mountain. To fulfil her dream she had to acquire skills way outside her comfort zone and overcome paralysing fear. BASEClimb 2 documents Heather's two years of training and her inspiring recovery from a near-fatal bungy-jumping accident. It is an adventure, a love story and an uplifting drama with a cliff-hanger finale that's beyond imagination.
