ADVENTURES WITH PURPOSE: SWITZERLAND
PROJECT: How do you showcase showcase the country of Switzerland to an affluent, worldly, and “travel-ready” demographic. Enter “Richard Bangs’ Adventures with Purpose”; a content package that included a one-hour HD show distributed to over 110 million households via Public Television (PBS), companion book, tour-package, and web video clips. Quest for the Sublime. If there is one word that writers through the centuries have used to describe the great peaks, the glaciers, waterfalls, and grand scenery of Switzerland, it is the word “sublime.” Many consider Switzerland the birthplace of adventure travel, the wellspring for eco-tourism, the spur for organized tours into the wilds. But what is it that makes this vault of Nature so sublime?
