Synopsis

Documentary about the disappearance of British climber George Mallory and his companion Andrew Irvine, on June 8, 1924, near the summit of Mount Everest. Did Mallory and Irvine actually reach the top of Everest 29 years before Hillary and Tensing? Could they possibly have survived the conditions at the summit, clad only in layers of cotton and tweed and wearing hob-nailed boots? In May 1999, a "Nova" expedition located Mallory's body on a rock-strewn precipice, creating an international news sensation. What light does the discovery throw on mountaineering's most haunted mystery?
