TV: Rockface (BBC1).

WELL, this is a surprise. The BBC have brought back this cliff-hanger of a series that failed to grip a big audience first time around.

Focusing on the lives and loves of a mountain rescue team there were stunning stunts but Casualty and London's Burning seem to have cornered the market in that department.

Every script here has to be vetted by an ex-Royal Marine Commando who now works in the mountains. So,detailwise,it can't be faulted.

There's no denying the strength of the acting as shown by one dramatic scene where the team leap into action when a hang glider loses control.

There's a lot happening throughout but there is something missing and the perishing cold seems to come out of the TV set to hit you.
