Don't Look Down 2014

Urban free climbers are a new breed of daredevils, young men and women who illegally climb cranes and buildings without any safety equipment, then hang from them, hundreds of metres above the ground, one slip from certain death... Free climbing originated in Eastern Europe, but has recently spread to Britain. James Kingston is a 23-year-old who lives with his mother near Southampton. In his spare time James scales the local 100m cranes and 200m radio towers. Now James embarks on a journey to the spiritual home of urban free climbing, Ukraine, where he teams up with the infamous Mustang Wanted, the craziest climber of them all. As Mustang and James explore Kiev, the pair push themselves to new extremes, climbing derelict buildings and tightrope-walking hundreds of metres above the city, before finally heading to the iconic Moscow bridge to attempt Mustang's latest death defying stunt. Don't Look Down is fascinating, revealing and nerve-wracking.

Don't Look Down was a BBC 2 documentary television series written and presented by Kevin McCloud which ran for six episodes beginning in May 2000. Each episode is a documentary about the history of famous tall buildings in the United Kingdom, including the Forth Rail Bridge, Salisbury Cathedral, the Lloyd's building, Trellick Tower, the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank Observatory and Liverpool Cathedral. McCloud looks at the buildings' construction, architecture and history, but with the twist that part of the episode featured McCloud climbing the outside of the building as a way to conquer his fear of heights. McCloud also filmed the series around his fortieth birthday, claiming that it was an excellent way to remain fit. The series was aired again on the Discovery Channel in the UK during 2009 where it was retitled Kevin McCloud's UK Superstructures
