The team has left Everest Base Camp and is now at Camp 1. Winds are high on the mountain at the moment, Gareth and Richard are enduring temperatures of -18°… but they don’t look too sad about it.
We love this picture of our Cameraman Gareth, with Richard and Pema the Sherpa on Pokalde! Follow our blogs for more updates and pictures all the way from Everest. They’re looking forward to a Puja ceremony on the 21st!

Our incredible self-shooting PD, Gareth Morrow heads off to Nepal with Richard Parks and the Jagged Globe expedition team – their mission – to climb Everest without oxygen in the name of dementia research for our BBC special, working title ‘Mind Over Mountain’.
Dale took a break from speaking engagements to visit the team at Downbelow Marine & Wildlife Adventures for an afternoon of diving while the Queen Mary 2 was in port at Kota Kinabalu.
There were top side production discussions but not without an opportunity to dive down below on a recce.
Dale said “ Scuba diving here is always like jumping into a scene from ‘Finding Nemo’, an abundance of colourful hard and soft corals with plenty of species of anemone fish. Let’s hope the plan works out, I’d love to film here and work with Dive Down Below they are true pros .”
