The Premise

Documentaries following the journeys of HRH Prince Harry and the wounded ex-servicemen of Walking With The Wounded.

After working with Walking With The Wounded on the expedition to the North Pole, Captive Minds brokered the production rights to the documentary ‘Harry’s Arctic Heroes’ awarding them to production company, TwoFour.

After the initial documentary and two further expeditions with Walking With The Wounded, two more documentaries were produced: ‘Harry’s Mountain Heroes’ and ‘Harry’s South Pole Heroes’.
