Storyline

Two mountaineers died in an unsuccessful attempt to scale the Choga Sar in the Himalayas. That ill-fated expedition is now the subject of a libel trial. Captain Piers Bowman who led the climb alleged in a TV documentary that the men died as a result of the cowardly and negligent behaviour of fellow climber Dennis Wainwright. Wainwright argues the allegations were false: he behaved completely properly in dreadful conditions and the men's deaths could not have been prevented. He suggests Bowman has made the claims because he is unable to cope with failure and is looking for a scapegoat. Written by Alan Briscoe

Trivia

Justice Campbell reveals a strong knowledge of mountaineering and seems about to suggest he was a climber in his younger days but cuts himself off, perhaps feeling it was not relevant. See more »
