Sir Chris Bonington has climbed many of the world's highest peaks. He takes Helen Mark to High Pike in the Lake District to see a view from the top which remains his favourite.

High Pike in the Lake District is far from the highest peak Sir Chris Bonington has scaled yet from its summit he can see some of the most magnificent views in the Northern Fells and the place he calls home. Helen Mark attempts to keep up with one of the UK's most renowned mountaineers as they climb High Pike together and discovers, not just his incredible story of love and loss but also his passion for the area of Caldbeck itself.
