Triple Echo Productions is an independent TV and Radio company

The Adventure Show is a visually stunning series built around Scotland’s thriving adventure sports scene – from mountain biking and kayaking, to adventure racing, surfing and mountain marathons.


It is commissioned by BBC Sport Scotland.  Follow the Adventure show on Facebook and Twitter.  Also check out our monthly feature on this month’s adventure show.

The Adventure Show started back in 2005.


Nine series later its gone from being a late evening niche programme to something that is now part of the main evening schedules and, from what you tell us, is appreciated by a wide variety of people from active outdoor enthusiasts to armchair adventurers. It is made by Richard, Margaret, James and Laura (Triple Echo Productions) and a support team of editors, camera people, producers, directors, graphics gurus and an audio all star cast who make what’s said out of breath on the hill into something everyone can understand - well in most cases…


And lets not forget our presenting team - Dougie Vipond, Duncan McCallum, Desire Wilson & Cameron McNeish.


We make nine one hour programmes each year… which leaves some time for our own adventures too.


Six programmes are based around competitive outdoor events - for example, mountain biking, triathlons, kayaking and various marathons. Some events we feel should be covered on a regular basis because of their importance to both the outdoor and local communities and, in a wider sense, to Scotland as well - for example the Fort William World Cup Mountain Biking and the Strathpuffer 24 hour endurance race.

The Adventure Show can be seen south of the border throughout the UK on Sky Digital Channel 990. Many episodes are also shown on the BBC's iPlayer.

As you might guess, we always have more events then we can fit into each series and the decision on which events to cover is a complicated one. We need events that take place throughout the year; also throughout Scotland and as many different disciplines as possible. So… quite a juggling act… Hopefully we get it right more than we get it wrong...


We also have a number of features in these programs which are outdoors related - some are regular fixtures like our Wild Weekend, gear reviews and others are simply great stories about the outdoors that we try and fit in.


Each series also includes 3 full-length documentary films… These include Cameron McNeish’s walks (which are usually broadcast around Christmas and Hogmanay and must be the cheapest diet course on offer anywhere…) and a variety of other subjects like Andrew Murray’s epic run from John O'Groats to the Sahara, Paralympic champion Karen Darke showing how talented she is kayaking in Patagonia and a portrait of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team in what turned out to be their busiest winter for 30 years.

Many of the items and events featured in the Adventure Show have come about as a direct result of your suggestions…


In answer to many queries, here’s how you help us and get the best chance of seeing your item in the programme…


Most of our planning takes place between January and March, and while we always try to say ‘yes’ to good ideas, if you are planning an event/journey/want to see something covered... the trick is to give us as much notice as possible.


We like to talk…(apart from when we’re editing to a looming deadline…) So to contact us click here.


And being polite we always try to reply… occasionally we get too busy, so if you’ve made a suggestion and not heard anything after 10 days or so… prod us into action…
