A dramatised documentary
Introduced on film by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh

Every year some four thousand boys from all parts of Great Britain are sent by their employers or their schools on 'Outward, Bound' courses. What is 'Outward Bound'? What is the object of these courses and what happens to the boys who go on them?

To find the answer to these questions the BBC Television Service sent three young actors, a film unit, and the writers and producer of this programme to an 'Outward Bound' mountain course on the Cumberland Fells. The boys went through the training, sharing every part of it; and the camera team, too, found themselves climbing with their equipment in all weathers to obtain film that forms part of the programme.
Written by Leonard Cottrell and Richard Wade.
(A BBC telerecording of the broadcast on January 7)
