The Challenge of the Channel

Liane Llewellyn has to be one of the most incredible athletes I've come across. The Yorkshire physiotherapist swam non-stop across the channel and back in twenty seven and a half hours. We had a cameraman in Dover to film with her before she left and on her return. His footage was sent to me in Leeds via the ITV Meridian newsroom in Maidstone where I used to work. I then edited the package together. I'm particularly fond of the shots of her walking on all fours, like an insect, to become the first woman from Yorkshire to do the double crossing.


  1. A lovely piece.

    Now that's the sort of topics that should be reported on more often.

    Keep up the great work.

  2. If you 'edit the package' you don't need to add the word 'together' - tautology.
    Very interesting package - what stamina she must have. Amazing. Thought your delivery very clear.
