First Crossings TV ONE Ebenezer Teichelmann

At last, one of Ebenezer Teichelmann's great feats of exploration and mountaineering has been acknowledged on NZ TV. I spent 13 years researching and writing the definitive biography on Ebenezer Teichelmann which was published in 2005. Tonight this was the script on TV One's billboard.
Tuesday 6 Aug
First Crossings 8:30pm - 9:30pm (G) Factual TV ONE
Kevin and Jamie take on the fearsome Cook River Gorge as they retrace the footsteps of pioneer photographer Ebenezer Teichelmann in 1905.

It was an excellent production of one of many of Teichelmann's remarkable journeys during which he did 26 first ascents. What I liked in tonight's production was what I highlighted in my biography on Teichelmann; the love between he and Mary, his role as a pioneer conservationist, his outstanding photography, his coaching of future mountain guides, and the strategic manner in which he promoted tourism. I still have many copies of my book on Teichelmann available and from Paper Plus in Hokitika. Here is the link: http://www.westcoastbooks.co.nz/proddetail.asp?prod=B3877



I also have a blog on this amazing human being: http://ebenezerteichelmann.blogspot.co.nz/

It was a fasinating insight to Teichelmann's fortitude and courage, with him venturing into this area. I too have gone into some pretty dangerous areas, however hats off to Teichelmann for having the vision and dare.
