About Matt Dickinson
Matt Dickinson is a writer and film maker with an enduring (and sometimes dangerous) passion for wild places and even wilder people. He was trained at the BBC and has subsequently filmed many award winning documentaries for National Geographic television, Discovery Channel and Channel 4. As a director/cameraman he has worked with some of the world's top climbers and adventurers, joining them on their expeditions to the Himalayas and beyond. Along the way he has survived some life threatening dramas; an avalanche in Antarctica, a killer storm on Everest and a night time 'grizzly bear' attack in the Yukon which wasn't quite what it seemed (actually they were beavers!). Matt's proudest moment was filming on the summit of Mount Everest having successfully scaled the treacherous north face of the world's highest peak. www.mattdickinson.com
