They were seen at 12.50 p.m. just 790 feet from the summit and 'going strong for the top'. Within minutes, Mallory and Irvine had disappeared in a snowstorm and were never seen alive again." "What happened to these two pioneering climbers is the most famous mystery in the history of mountaineering. For 75 years, there has been fierce debate over whether they were the first to reach the summit, 29 years before Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. In March, 1999, an expedition primarily sponsored by the BBC climbed to the North Face of Everest. Their discoveries became front-page news around the world. This story by film producer Peter Firstbrook explores the events leading up to Mallory and Irvine's historic attempt to reach the summit of the highest mountain in the world, giving a first-hand account of the 1999 search expedition. Firstbrook utilizes his extensive historical research and the amazing evidence found in 1999 to piece together the final hours of the two brave heroes - George Mallory and Andrew Irvine."--BOOK JACKET." ;
