Schofield’s Sth African Adventure starts transmitting Friday 24th Feb on ITV1 at 8pm. It’s a 3 part 30 min series.

We follow Phillip and his wife Steph as they sample what South Africa have to offer. During the series we filmed Phillip cage diving with sharks, abseiling off Table Mountain, sampling the local wine and we saw first hand the amazing conservation work that’s being done to help save the critically endangered Rhino population in South Africa.

An amazing series to have worked on.

Phillip Sth African Adventure 2 Rich and I filming Phillip Abseiling off Table Mountain, to enable us to film this sequence we had to climb half way down Table Mountain, we then had to be harnessed to a position where there was a 500m sheer drop either side. After the filming we of course then had to climb back up with all the kit!
