Airing on BBC One at 10:40pm on Tuesday the 6th of May, 2014, ‘Miller’s Mountain’ is a new comedy based around the antics of a ragtag family of Mountain Rescue volunteers.
When the naive and enthusiastic Conor (Kevin Guthrie) reports for his first day of volunteering, Jimmy Miller (Jimmy Chisholm), the shambolic old rescue hand, takes it upon himself to teach him the ways of the hills.
Conor’s training starts at the ‘Busted Femur’ pub where he’s introduced to no-nonsense barmaid Jules (Sharon Rooney) and fellow rescuer Bill, who boasts somewhat questionable social skills. And if that wasn’t enough to contend with, Conor later meets Bernie (Kathryn Howden), the team’s head of operations and a woman who’s happy in her work to the point of delirium.
When it comes time for the actual mountain rescuing though, things go from bad to worse, to even worse than that.
