‘Space Dive’ sales chart upward track

BBC license doc to 13 countries

LONDON

“Space Dive,” the docu co-produced by National Geographic and the BBC charting Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking skydive, is set to become a big seller internationally.

So far distributor BBC Worldwide has licensed the show to 13 countries.

Belgium (VRT), Denmark (DR), Finland (YLE), Germany (RTL), Holland (VPRO), France (France 4), Russia (Russia 2), Norway (NRK), Singapore (Channel News Asia), Korea (Chosun), Poland (TVP), Indonesia (Kompas TV) and Canada (Sportsnet) have all acquired the docu, which claims to show exclusive footage depicting Baumgartner’s descent.

BBC Worldwide’s distribution topper Steve Macallister said: “With the ‘Space Dive’ documentary viewers all over the world will have the chance to step behind-the-scenes and see just what went into this epic mission and experience the jump through Baumgartner’s eyes.”

Last month Baumgartner jumped from 128,100 feet above the Earth’s surface, completing the highest and fastest freefall ever.

In the process he became the first person to skydive through the sound barrier.
