Descent (197), August 2007

Dog Cams and Sound Bites

A major BBC television programme about caves has been made, due to be screened in August. Here is the story of how the project was planned and filmed.

The Man of Friday the Thirteenth

Twenty years ago, on a solo trip, Watty pushed Penyghent Pot's Friday the Thirteenth Series to a conclusion; it was a bold, hard undertaking. Tragically, Jon Watt died young: here is his tribute.

Crocs, Docs, Critters and Caves

An expedition to islands off the coast of Panama has proved fruitful, even if the local fauna might have thought otherwise.

The Destruction of the Robey

Reports of the loss of mining artefacts and buildings are all too common, and now two more have been destroyed. Mining historians will mourn the loss of the Robey Incline in North Wales.

Speleovision: Panoramas and Giants

From the UK comes a new film about pushing Spain's Sima GESM, while from the USA is a new departure: a set of stunningly beautiful panoramic views of Carlsbad Caverns and Lechuguilla Cave that can be viewed from any angle, as if in the centre of a sphere.

Blind Date Caving Anyone?

Are caving clubs failing to attract newcomers to the sport ? What of the internet and its prevailing influence? If you simply want to get underground, what's a girl to do?

The Bottom Line

Oh Let My Books Be Then the Eloquence ...

Perhaps faced with limited funds or simply overenthusiastic editors, caving clubs regularly seem to discuss whether to issue their journals as electronic files, consigning paper to oblivion – but not if Alan Jeffreys has a say in it.
