The Epic of Everest (87 mins)
"We expect no mercy from Everest," said George Mallory as he began his final ascent on the treacherous mountain - and he got none. Captain John Noel's moving and visually ravishing account puts the human struggle at its heart, while bringing home his own rapture at the 'lost world' of Tibet. Simon Fisher Turner's score gives majestic expression to Noel's passion and sense of wonder.
