Its a long way from Antarctica, but I was persuaded (it took about 1.4 seconds) to go to Bhutan with the hot-air ballooning team to get some experience of filming from balloons before they (we) all went to Antarctica to become the first to fly balloons there.  This was a very rare opportunity, when Bhutan was still virtually closed to tourists - the King had to give us permission to fly, and there were restrictions about flying over their Dzongs - Buddhist monasteries.  This stop on the single road through the country at Dochu-La ('La' means pass) was our first close-up experience of the ubiquitous prayer flags.  Although it was only meant to be a practice run, the trip resulted in three short films, two I made for the ballooning guys as a 'thank you' and one - a visual tour of Bhutan - ended up on broadcast TV.

Alas, I couldn't secure a broadcast commission for the Antarctica documentary in time, and the trip was cancelled anyway when it was discovered that it would have been virtual suicide, based, as we would have been, on one of the Russian bases on Queen Maud Land.  No facilities, no accomodation, no possibility of rescue if/when something went wrong (which it would).  End of.
