Twofour is to once again follow Prince Harry in his role as patron of veterans charity Walking With The Wounded, swapping the Arctic for the world’s highest mountain - Everest.

The indie, which produced last year’s BBC1 two-part series Harry’s Arctic Heroes, has been commissioned to make a single documentary entitled Harry’s Mountain Heroes for ITV1.

The 90-minute film will follow the team of five wounded servicemen as they battle against extreme climate, high altitudes and physical hard work as they attempt to scale the mountain and reach the summit.

The prince – third in line to the throne - joins the team in the days prior to their departure for Nepal, and follows their fortunes during their ten-week journey.

The men were all in active service in Afghanistan or Iraq when they suffered life-changing injuries.

As well as their attempt to summit Everest, the film considers the men’s on-going rehabilitation and re-integration into civilian life post injury.

Harry’s Mountain Heroes was commissioned for ITV by Diana Howie, factual commissioning editor and Alison Sharman, director of factual and daytime. 

The programme is executive produced by Bridget Sneyd and Melanie Leach. Producer/director is Alexis Girardet.

Leach said: “Walking with the Wounded is a charity we hold incredibly close to our hearts.  We are thrilled to be working with them and Prince Harry once again and it is an honour to bring their amazingly heroic story to ITV1.”

Twofour’s first film with the prince, Harry’s Arctic Heroes, secured an average consolidated rating of 4.75m (18.46%) across both parts, slightly down on BBC1’s slot average of 4.84m (19.97%).
