Storyline

Last year a team of French Free Runners captivated Londoners when they scaled some of the city's most famous landmarks from the Albert Hall to HMS Belfast for Channel 4's Jump London . This time they've decided to take on the whole country in a new project that ranges from Edinburgh to Cardiff. Free Running, or Le Parkour, involves literally leaping from roof to roof in a death-defying, yet beautiful, series of jumps, slides and somersaults. It is a discipline combining an extraordinary athleticism and lack of fear - created by Sebastien Foucan and his friends - that has spread across the world. Foucan sees Free Running as more than a spectacle, it is a way of life, with a spiritual dimension plucked from popular culture and allowing an escape from everyday reality. For Jump Britain , Foucan and his team are joined by members of the burgeoning UK Parkour scene as they tackle some of the UK's most iconic sites including Edinburgh Castle and the Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland, the ...

Brilliant. A job well done Mr Christie
20 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To create a program such as this, that grabs and holds the attention of the general public and the parkour community, was a feat indeed. Mike Christie and the Jump Britain team have done an excellent job of showing the world more about the art of Parkour and deserve a massive thank you from the entire Parkour community.

It would have been very easy to portray this as 'just another extreme sport' which to some it is, but to the majority of people in the world that practise the art it is so much more. JB captured this when they brought in the British freerunners from Urban Freeflow and allowed them and Sebastien to talk about what Parkour is to them, it showed the effect that Parkour had had on their lives and I feel showed some of the magic that is unlocked inside when people discover it for the first time. It's not just adults playing at being children. It's not about big jumps and crazy stunts, there is so much more to it.

I, for one, look forward to the next instalment in the Jump series. Thank you to Mike Christie and the rest of the Jump Britain team. You have created something truly special and I hope that you will be able to follow the Parkour through what is looking to be a very big and year.
