Banff 2020 Blue Programme:
 
A Nordic Skater (5 minutes)

Nordic skating is the art of long-distance skating on natural ice and, on the spellbinding frozen fjords
and lakes of Norway, Per Sollerman has found his calling. A former action sports fan, Per now uses all
of his senses to journey safely over the ice and feel part of the landscape. An enticing portrayal of
this little-known sport.

Return to Earth (Tour Edit) (5 minutes)

Combining epic riding with life’s big questions, Return to Earth stars mountain biking’s biggest
athletes, unsung talents and up-and-coming youth as they shred gnarly trails from British Columbia
to Utah, while proving that when we lose track of time, we can make the most of it. In these
moments of clarity, there can be an entire lifetime worth remembering.

The High Road (18 minutes)

Nina Williams is drawn to climbing the most beautiful lines… which also happen to be the tallest.
Nina specialises in highball bouldering – climbing tall boulders of extreme difficulty, without a rope –
which combines the physicality of bouldering with the mental discipline of free soloing. Watch in
awe as she flexes her guns and tests her nerves well into the no-fall zone.

Spectre Expedition – Mission Antarctica (36 minutes)

1,000 miles, 200+kg, 65 days, 3 mates, 1 mountain. Using snow-kites to travel great distances, with
massive loads at speeds up to 60kmph, this is the epic tale of Leo Houlding, Jean Burgun and Mark
Sedon's daring dream to reach the summit of the most remote mountain on earth: The Spectre,
Antarctica.

The Frenchy (11 minutes)

Jaques Houot, 82, may just have found the fountain of youth. The Colorado-based French ski racer,
downhill mountain biker, road cyclist and incorrigible flirt is the embodiment of joi de vivre. Jaques
has survived countless close calls, including avalanches, cancer, car accidents, a heart attack and
even attempted murder. As a survivor, he tries to enjoy every day he has, ripping through the
mountains with his signature catchphrase, “No problem!”

The Long River Home (20 minutes)

US veterans who were injured in war come together for another mission as they guide blind Navy
veteran Lonnie Bedwell on a 14-day river trip in the Grand Canyon. Battling powerful rapids
including the daunting Lava Falls, this is a film about overcoming the residual impacts of war through
kayaking – forming a team, kicking out in the current and finding a line through the chaos.

The Running Pastor (9 minutes)

As a shepherd’s son, Sverri Steinholm grew up chasing sheep around the dramatic, otherworldly Faroe
Islands. Today he is a pastor of the Lutheran Church, the dominant religion on the islands. He is also a 
compulsive runner, finding solace and spiritual refuge from personal conflicts and the burdens of
priesthood on rugged, exposed trails of his homeland.

Des Hinks: One Night Stand-Up (Adults Only)

If you went to Norris Bank or Stockport Grammar, or you're a Stockport County fan, you'll probably know Des.

If you went to Sams Bar, Brannigans, Squares, Cobdens or Heaven And Hell in the glory days of the noughties, you've probably bumped into Des, had a pint with Des, or even had a cheeky kiss and cuddle with Des.

And even if you don't know who Des is, it's still definitely worth a tenner to come and support the debut stand-up show of a Stockport lad who's been on Countdown (which was quite funny), once took all his clothes off during a best man speech (which was even funnier) and lasted just eight days in a temporary job at Tesco during the Coronavirus outbreak before getting sacked for writing a comedy diary which went viral on Facebook (which tickled the nation).

If you're lucky, Des might even sing and dance for you as well, plus there's the small matter of the funniest quote a sexual partner has ever said in the history of the modern world.

Johnny McEvoy

Johnny’s big break came in late 1966 when he recorded a song called Mursheen Durkin, an old ballad from the west of Ireland. It topped the charts at Number 1 for three consecutive weeks. It was followed up by The Boston Burglar which also reached Number 1.


His first tour of the United States was in 67. It involved 7 weeks of concerts during that hot summer of Hippies, Protests and Vietnam. One of the many famous venues he played was the “Hungry Eye” in San Francisco. However, his favourite was the famous “Carnegie Hall” in New York. It was at this stage in his career he had his third Number 1 hit with the song Nora from Sean O’Casey’s famous play “The Plough and the Stars”


On a golden August afternoon while sitting on a stone in the sun outside a pub in Co. Sligo came the inspiration to write his first song Long, long before your time. It too reached Number 1.


Many of his songs have become standards and been recorded by many other singers.

Sleeping Beauty
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

After the sell-out performances of Nutcracker and Swan Lake last year, Russian National Ballet returns to the UK.

Every child’s favourite fairy-tale, Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score.

Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse.

Outline based on the fairy-tale by Charles Perrault, the Sleeping Beauty tells of the Princess Aurora, cursed at her christening by the evil Carabosse to prick her finger one day on a spindle and die.

Thanks to the timely intervention of the Lilac Fairy, she doesn’t die, but sleeps for a hundred years.

Woken by a prince, who has battled through the Enchanted Forest to reach her, they marry at a ceremony attended by nursery rhyme characters like Puss in Boots and all the other forest creatures.

There are no scores more successful in supporting the full range of ballet than those by Tchaikovsky.
Highlights include the Famous ‘Rose Adagio’ when Princess Aurora is introduced to four princes.

A wonderful evening out and memories which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.

Kindly Note: This performance is performed to play back music.

Dave Spikey - A Funny Thing Happened....I shot Derek Rigby
This show was simply going to be called “I shot Derek Rigby” which Dave has freely admitted to ; in fact this has never been in doubt - there were several witnesses - but (there’s always a “but”) he thought that might be a little too weird a title so, although he will talk about the shooting in some depth (Because, to be fair, it was funny to all present with the exception of Derek), he will concentrate on the many other funny things that happen all the time.

Funny things happen at home, at work, out shopping, at the Vets, in Prison, out with his eccentric Gran and in Hong Kong - obviously. Dave’s comedy radar has always instinctively drawn him to these small out-of-the-ordinary events that wash over most of us and pass us by. Once identified, he analysis and elaborates them in his own way whilst at the same time reminding us that not only have we too witnessed them, they’ve probably happened to us!

It’s this added dimension, this comedy of association that elevates the events to laugh-out-loud funny. No wonder Time Out magazine said of him, “Not only a very funny comedian but one of the finest raconteurs around”

The Thunder Girls
Fame and greed tore their friendship apart,
They haven’t spoken in decades ….

Ever wondered what goes on behind closed doors when legendary bands meet up to discuss a reunion? What’s really going on behind the hugs and kisses at those reunion press conferences?

THE THUNDER GIRLS were a successful ‘80s girl band until lead singer, Chrissie, sensationally quit the Band to pursue a solo career taking with her, Rick, the Band’s manager. Chrissie broke the Girl Code as Rick was also the boyfriend of Band mate, Roxanne.

At the reunion dinner from hell, Chrissie tries to reunite the band to salvage herself from bankruptcy after being conned out of her fortune by her toyboy husband.

But is there a price which can heal the wounds?

Or maybe some friendships never die, even if you want them to?

30 years later, can lightning strike twice?
