Laser Guided Productions made a film about the swimmers who regularly enjoy the waters of Hampstead Heath in London, called THE PONDS, Still Waters Run Deep.

The Ponds, produced by British open water swimmers Patrick McLennan and Samuel Smith, was released in the UK in 2019 to wide acclaim. It was subsequently screened on the BBC and is being released worldwide during 2020.

As an outdoor swimmer based in London, I’ve made a film about the year-round swimmers at the enigmatic, historic Hampstead ponds in central London,” said McLennan. “The ponds are not about competition, although a fair number of Channel swimmers have trained there over the years. They’re about the community of the cold water buzz and the mental and physical benefits of outdoor swimming.”
