"The Underground Eiger" was a Yorkshire TV production which went out on 21st February 1979. The Yorkshire film Archive is putting the film onto the BFI Player sometime next year. I have just watched the film for the first time, and have only now learnt of the suicide of Oliver Statham later that year. It came as a big surprise because there was nothing in the film to indicate that Oliver (the Bear) was in anything other than a good frame of mind. It must have been awful for his girl friend, Anne Poole, who also features heavily in the programme. If anyone has any thoughts on what led Oliver to take his life I would like to hear them. Incidently, it seems form the film that his pottery workshop is in Skitpon, although elsewhere I have read that it was in Sedbergh. Has anyone got any information on this?
