L., ABC Video., Roadshow Entertainment (Firm), PB Roadshow Entertainment [distributor] PP [Australia] YR 2000 AB On 8 June 1924 George Mallory and Andrew Irvine left their tent high on the slopes of Mount Everest and climb into history. They were seen at 12.50 pm, just 240 meters from the summit and "going strong for the top". Within minutes, Mallory and Irvine had disappeared and were never seen again. For the next 75 years what had happened to them remained the most famous mystery in the history of mountaineering. Could these two pioneering climbers have reached the summit, 29 years before Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay? Where and how did they perish? This video is the gripping and intensely moving film which follows the BBC sponsered expedition in March 1999 in Search of Mallory and Irvine.
