The official record of Mallory and Irvine's 1924 expedition< br /> A film by Captain John Noel

When George Mallory and Sandy Irvine attempted to reach the summit of Everest in 1924 they came closer than any previous attempt. Inspired by the work of Herbert Ponting (The Great White Silence) Captain Noel filmed in the harshest of conditions, with specially adapted equipment, to capture the drama of the fateful expedition. But it is the brooding presence of the mountain itself that is the heart of Noel's film, and his photography captures the magical play of light and shadow on an alien landscape which enhances the vulnerability, isolation and courage of the mountaineers. This critically acclaimed restoration by the BFI National Archive includes the original coloured tints and a newly commissioned score by Simon Fisher Turner.
