"A great story, well told."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I liked the plain, documentary-type treatment of a most notable event in our history. I remember the event itself, and I value the chance of seeing a very convincing enactment.

"Everest challenge at it's best"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have been addicted to the challenge of Everest , so this movie highlighted my thoughts of it all. Reminiscences of a past era.

Description

Beyond The Edge is a 2013 documentary film on DVD, about Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's monumental and historical ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953.

In 1953, the ascent of Everest remained the last of Earth's great challenges. Standing at over 29,000ft, the world's highest mountain posed a fearsome challenge and had already claimed thirteen lives in previous expeditions.

Faced with treacherous winds, sub-zero temperatures and battling altitude sickness, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay finally achieved the impossible and became the first men to stand atop Everest. It was an event that stunned the world and defined an era.

Sir Edmund Hillary's incre­dible achievement remains one of the greatest adventure stories of all time; the epic journey of a man from modest beginnings who overcame adversity to reach the highest point on Earth.

Both a classic triumph of the underdog story and a gripping, cinematic experience, BEYOND THE EDGE is a tale of human endurance, tenacity and courage in the face of overwhelming odds.

For the first time ever, and with the support of the Hillary family, Sir Edmund's story will be brought to life on the big screen, ‘relived’ using both original colour footage, photographs and dramatised recreations of the assault.
