Some of you may well have noticed that there is a brief clip from E11 included in the BBC's trailer for 'Summer of Sport' that they are playing several times a day (all throughout the summer, I guess).
Mixed in with clips from lots of other TV sports, about halfway through there is a shot of Dave MacLeod's horrendous upside-down fall.

It is strange to have climbing included with mainstream sport on the TV. The reason? Well, on screen there is a clue. Text mentions a 'Live Climb broadcast'. Coming soon. (Hopefully there won't be any 70ft falls when that happens).
I'm not sure whether this trailer is running across the whole UK or just Scotland? Anyway, there is also a second brief climbing clip in it too which I think is of Scott Muir. Not sure if that is our footage or not. We filmed him in Austria 18 months ago and that was used on the TV, but I think the clip used is UK?
