An IT worker turned outdoors film-maker whose movie was featured on BBC spoke to a packed house at a Lake District lecture.

Terry Abraham, guest speaker at the Friends of the Lake District’s annual Kirby Lecture, launched his cinematography career after being made redundant.

The Nottinghamshire-based outdoors enthusiast produced his Cairngorms in Winter and Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike, the latter being shown in edited form on BBC 4 to public acclaim.

The Friends of the Lake District said: “His talk provided a fascinating insight into the motivation behind his passion for filming in the Lake District as well as a sneak preview of footage from his latest production, Life of a Mountain: Blencathra.

“Terry cites a love of the Lake District and a desire to share that passion as the catalysts for his new film-making career.”

He said: “Without a shadow of a doubt, the Lake District is the most beautiful corner of England and an area I often refer to as my spiritual home.

“Sadly, too many people of all ages and backgrounds are oblivious to the wonderful landscapes we are fortunate to have here in Britain, and it’s that fact more than anything else that drives me to share and seek to inspire the wider public to the joys of such places.”

The lecture took place in Ambleside this week.
