We'd just like to share a recommendation that was sent to us by one of our clients who travelled with us to the Everest region last year. Mr S described 'The Conquest of Everest' as a "remarkable film that anyone with a love of the region would enjoy". And this documentary from 1953 is now available to watch on YouTube.Documenting various Everest expeditions, the film stars Tenzing Norgay, Edmund Hillary, George Band, John Hunt, Meredith Edwards and Tom Bourdillon and is directed by George Lowe. It makes fascinating viewing for those interested in the history of Everest.
