Leo Dickinson

Leo Dickinson was just twenty-four when he persuaded Yorkshire Television to finance his first film, an ascent of the Eiger's notoriously dangerous North Face. The result was a prize-winning film that established Leo Dickinson's reputation as 'unquestionably the world's leading adventure film-maker' (American Alpine Journal). Since then he has made over fifty television films, inlcuding the record of a terrifying descent from Everest by canoe and, perhaps his best film, a reconstruction of the history of the Eiger in which he re-enacted John Harlin's 5000-feet fall down the mountain face. Peter Gillman described it in the Sunday Times as 'providing some of the most breathtaking climbing sequences ever filmed.' His recent films are 'Into the Black and Blue Holes', 'Right up the Zipper' (on sky-diving), 'Flight of the Windhorse' (on Himalayan ballooning) and his amazing Wakulla Springs film, shown on Channel 4.
