The Conquest of Everest

As is probably evident from my posts so far I have a great interest in everything to do with Mt Everest. I want to climb it, I admire those who have and i pride myself on knowing a lot about it. Sadly i have never seen the original documentary from December 1953 about the expedition....until now! A friend sent me a link to the film, it's on youtube for anyone to view for free.

I'm actually watching the documentary as i write this and it really is very good. It has taught me a lot about the expedition that i never knew before; Hillary and co did a lot of the labour, set the ropes and chipped in around the camp. Amazingly the film is in colour and shows some incredible shots. The commentary is a little bit wooden but the film makes up for this! Sit back, relax and enjoy the film - you won't be disappointed!
