Award-winning filmmaker Terry Abraham will reveal the methods and stories behind his Lakeland BBC ‘Life of a Mountain’ series and talk about his journey from redundancy to acclaimed producer promoting Cumbria.
Terry is a self-taught filmmaker and photographer with a passion and interest for the outdoors which is second to none. After being made redundant from a lowly IT role, he chased a dream which lead to producing and directing the critically
acclaimed BBC hit ‘Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike – A Year in the Life of England’s Highest Peak’.
Growing up in rural Nottinghamshire he spent much of his youth exploring Sherwood Forest and working alongside his grandfather in the countryside. Often travelling to far flung scenic landscapes his grandfather proved to be a major influence in shaping his love and appreciation for the land we live in.
In recent years he’s pursued his passion for the landscape in an obsessive manner following a health scare, often over-ruling any other interest in his life.
