In ‘Rope work’ Tim tracks a transition from being a climber, caver and outdoor education teacher, to working in the rope access industry then specifically in the film and television industry, assisting filmmakers to access difficult-to-reach locations to achieve unique perspectives for their cameras. From supervising safety in caves, up trees and on cliffs to an active volcano, this is the detail of ‘how did they get there safely?
