---------------

Mont Ventoux has inspired novelists, musicians and playwrights. It has prompted philosophers to ponder the meaning of life and it has tempted countless cyclists to test themselves against its steep slope.


But the Giant of Provence has a dark side too. It is where Tom Simpson died in stifling heat during the 1967 Tour de France and where Marco Pantani and Lance Armstrong duelled in 2000.


The Tour de France returns to Mont Ventoux on Bastille Day this year and so this episode looks at the mountain, its stories and its myths.
