Triple Echo Productions is an independent TV and Radio company

Triple Echo Productions have made a number of extremely successful adventure and exploration films and its current output includes The Adventure Show for BBC Scotland. Now in its fifth series, these prime time monthly programmes go behind the scenes of Scotland’s adventure sports scene and highlight the very best of the action.


In 2007 in addition to The Adventure Show, Triple Echo Productions produced To Hell and Back – an intimate and frightening portrait of the consequences of one of the world’s best climbers becoming obsessed with a new route in the heart of the Cairngorm mountains.  Dave MacLeod described his climb as ‘the most dangerous lead I’ve ever done...falling off from the crux or above would have meant death’.  The film was a finalist in the 2008 Celtic Film Festival.


Earlier productions include Wild Climbs, which portrayed extreme climbing in an entirely new way and has won a total of 11 awards around the world. It built upon the success of previous BBC 2 series The Face: Six Great Climbing Adventures; Wilderness Walks and The Edge (chronicling a 100 years of Scottish Climbing). An episode from the latter was described by the Daily Mail as, ‘a perfect documentary’ and received a Scottish BAFTA. These films also won prizes at film festivals in Canada; America; mainland Europe and Japan.


Other key films include an award winning portrayal of the severely brain damaged climber, Paul Pritchard (Life Matters, BBC 1 Wales); an exclusive portrait of the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa for BBC 2’s Correspondent; The Lost World of Mulu for Channel 4’s To the Ends of the Earth; Greenland Challenge, a dramatic four part series of adventure racing (BBC 2 Scotland); Mountain Rescue (Inside Story BBC Television); Chris Bonington’s Canadian Great Railway Journey and The Adventure is Not Yet Over (BBC North East), a film celebrating Sir Chris’ 70th birthday, which has won two international awards.


Triple Echo have also produced films for a number of private clients including Scottish Natural Heritage, the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, the John Muir Trust, Durham County Council, Northumberland County Council and the South Tees NHS Hospitals Trust.
