I tend to disagree. USA sensationalism at its best. Such conjecture, so many hand-waving and unproven statements about the past and what happened. Interesting ideas, VERY well presented (visually). Otherwise, as with many other american productions, everything is dramatic. "He had............ to urinate! <gasp>......... It was....... SUCH AN AMAZING THING!"
Meh. Too much toss.

there is an almost identical, better one now on ABC2 (it's actually about the making of the one that was just on ABC1) - done by the english. words are coming out at a normal rate, no pauses between words. it is clearly stating the goals of the filming and what they hope to achieve.

Q - What has he done on grit ?

A - Flying Buttress Direct on Stanage - HVS 5b

Personally I enjoyed it if you ignore the self-promotional stuff which would almost shame Donald Trump.

Firstly, at 2:50 they state they are in Kathmandu...with the frigging Potala Palace in the background (Lhasa, Tibet). Then again at 7:20. Poor research and editing that a 7th grader would have picked up on.

I had the feeling there is a bit of acting going on when Conrad is climbing the second step. Sure at that altitude it wouldn't have been easy, but I think he was turning it on for the camera. Thought that kind of stuff ruined what I thought was a pretty good doco. And the fall? Staged? Maybe, maybe not.

Watching the second one was actually better. In it you saw how many times they had to redo various bits and pieces for that first prog. in fact, there were more scenes in the second one about actual climbing than in the first (and again, more FACTUAL information about mallorys efforts).
According to the second show, the reason lee had his fingers and toes go numb and make him worry about frostbite (this was shown in the first one) was because the film crew made them redo so many takes of a particular scene that with all the sitting around they got to that state. If he had just kept climbing, and they just took the one take, he wouldn't have had a problem! ha!

Its too bad Conrad took that little fall on the 2nd step, wonder if he's going back for another shot at "ticking" it.
