"Beneath the Pennines" was part of the brilliant (for the time) Sid Perou series from memory Pipikin, Dowbergill, White Scar, Alum and Lancaster and made for the BBC.The Underground Eiger was entirely separate not by Sid and broadcast on the other "side".
It was part of a series of cave Diving films called 'Darkness Beckons' and it was filmed by Sid in the eighties.Underground Eiger was one of 4 episodes charting the history of British Cave Diving Starting from the break though at Wookey to the connections at Ingleborough and Keld head.It also documents several tragedies that have occured over the years. There are one or two UKC regulars in the films...looking very young.Thanks to 'Darwen Dave' I have three of the 4 episodes.
Ahh....I'm trying to think what the title was of that particular episode...Was it something along the lines of 'The devil is a gentleman'...or was that just Yockens quote after the dead mans handshake incident?Confused
The easiest way for you to find out (noting you're in the YSS) is to look up that CDG reference in your club library
