    It could be said that Conquest of Everest was 30 years in the making. In the early 1920s, the British Mallory expedition tried and failed to climb the world's highest mountain. Films of this abortive mission are presented in contrast to the coverage of the far more successful (and infinitely more famous) 1952 ascent of Everest. Most of the footage seen herein was lensed by George Lowe, a member of the expedition. Alas, it was impossible to film scenes of the peak itself; the victory is thus conveyed verbally by narrator Meredith Edwards and by other expedition members. Happily, there isn't a dull moment in this exhilarating 78-minute documentary.

    On May 15, 2006, double amputee Mark Inglis reached the summit of Mt. Everest. It was a remarkable achievement, and Inglis was feted by the press and public alike. But only a few days later he was plunged into a storm of controversy when it was learned that he and his teammates had passed an incapacitated climber, Englishman David Sharp, leaving him to a lonely death high in the Death Zone. In "Dying for Everest", we hear their stories and witness the strange effect Everest has on the rules of survival. And at the end, we are able to judge for ourselves the morality of climbing in the Death Zone.
