Escapade Media has secured worldwide distribution rights excluding the UK to the CBBC commissioned kids documentary Teenage Ice Trekker – 1 x 50’ HD.
The documentary was produced by Moon Studio for CBBC’s My Life strand.
In this funny and rousing boy to man story, 14-year-old Jamie is thrown into the biggest adventure of his life when his dad invites him to join him on an Arctic trek. Jamie’s father has an eye condition which means he will go blind in the next 5-10 years, so he is cramming in as many life experiences as he can and this time he’s taking Jamie with him.
Jamie’s thrown in at the deep end having to climb a mountain in Eastern Greenland. They face 50 km/h winds, -20 temperatures and they must drag everything they need every step of the way.
Escapade Media’s Hamish Lewis said, “Whilst kids documentaries are vital for educational purposes, the need for inspirational content is equally as important. Teenage Ice Trekker shows children that anything is possible.”
