This Sunday on Discover channel, Nik Wallenda of the renowned Flying Wallandas will wire walk the Grand Canyon. It will be 1400 ft across and 1500 ft high. He will have no net and no tether.
There is a two-hour show first that shows his preparation and then another for his live, not prerecorded walk. This, to me, is both reality and drama, and I will be watching.
I remember watching when his great-grandfather, Karl Wallenda, fell to his death on a wire walk in Puerto Rico. It's an image I've never forgotten. Here's a link for anyone who might want more information.
