Storyline

In the face of overwhelming odds, dwindling oxygen supplies, freezing Jet Stream winds, avalanche, frostbite, widespread public negativity and the press reporting that failure was almost inevitable - A British team succeeded - Where all others had failed. On the 24th September 1975 at 6pm, Doug Scott and Dougal Haston stood at 29,095 ft on the world's highest mountain. They were the very first Britons to do so - And it was many days before the world even knew. This is a story of great leadership, teamwork, bravery, determination, sacrifice, tragedy, emotional journeys and a remarkable outcome.
