When Fear Meets the Line

Fear, height, challenge, focus and perseverance describe slacklining well. When Fear Meets the Line features one of the best slackliners in the UK and takes the audience through all stages of this extreme sport. Ben describes the feeling of fear to overcome when he first steps onto the slackline tightened between the two cliffs. Will Ben manage to walk across the other side above the 200 foot drop?
