Beyond the Edge

"Beyond the Edge" documents the epic true journey of the heroic and triumphant ascent to the top of Mount Everest in 1953 by Edmund Hillary, a modest bee-keeper and keen mountaineer from Auckland, New Zealand, and the very experienced Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay, of Nepal. Using original colour archival footage and photographs from the time, seamlessly interwoven with interviews as well as dramatic re-creations of the assault, this is a high-altitude 'fly on the wall' look inside one of the most inhospitable environments on earth and man's ability to conquer.
