"The Last Journey of Sir Ed, and a Memorial"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

We are a very years from his passing (2008), but this a good record of the State Funeral if you didn't make it (Disc 1). I learnt a few new things about this great Kiwi icon, i.e. he was our Commissioner to India (Disc 2). The Memorial Service at St Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle for the “laying up” of his banner was an interesting look into a centuries old Order (Disc 2).

A TVNZ documentary paying tribute to the legend and looking at Sir Edmund Hillary’s life after summiting Mt Everest, and the legacy he’s left behind.
The origins and the parameters of the special relationship New Zealanders have had with Hillary are explored; why we are so proud of him, why we like to think that his strengths and virtues are our strengths and virtues, why we like to believe that his resolve, courage, decency and compassion somehow represent the better part of ourselves.
