Another filming trip for the 'Secret Underground' HTV series. Carried all Gavin's filming gear through all the horribly muddy stuff in Otter Hole. The tidal sump was somewhat of a unique feature to find in a cave. We had to wait a few minutes for the water levels to drop. When we eventually got everyone and all the gear to the Hall of Thirty it was well worth it as it is a very impressive chamber. Having it illuminated by all the camera lights was also quite spectacular. The filming and interviews were completed. We then packed up all the gear and headed back to the tidal sump where again we had to wait for the levels to drop. Excellent trip, albeit very muddy.
