In 1953 Edmund Hillary & Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of the world in an act that symbolized everything good about human co-operation and courage. Sixty years later, an ugly confrontation high up the mountain between Western climbers and a mob of angry Sherpas makes global news. What’s going on up there? In this feature doc, we follow an Everest ascent from the perspective of the Sherpas for the first time. Through their eyes, we experience the politics and pressure of climbing the mountain and explore the so-called ‘brawl’ at 23,000 feet. (£7)
