Summary:
This set includes three NOVA episodes about the deadly history of Mount Everest. Everest: The Death Zone Get ready for a (literally) breathtaking trek up Mount Everest: from Base Camp at 17,600 feet, through the chilling, corpse-strewn Death Zone, to the very pinnacle of the Earth, five and a half miles above sea level. Can such an excruciating ascent cause permanent, damaging changes to the human body? Everest: The Mystery of Mallory and Irvine Did George Mallory reach the top of Mount Everest in 1924, nearly 30 years before Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay? More than just a spellbinding Everest saga, the story of Mallory and Irvine evokes memories of an era of exploration and heroic idealism when one could still 'walk off the map.' Lost On Everest Join the historic search for the body of mountain-climbing legend George Mallory atop Mount Everest. Climb the daunting slopes that challenged Mallory's mind, body and archaic equipment. And take part in mountaineering history as NOVA brings you an up-close look at this headline-making quest.
