    The beckoning silence

    Louise Osmond (2007)

    Joe Simpson, whose battle for survival featured in 'Touching the Void', travels to the Eiger to tell the story of one of mountaineering's most epic tragedies. Toni Kurz was a brilliant mountaineer who in 1936 tried to be the first to conquer the north face of the Eiger. The climb started well, but disaster struck and Kurz's climbing colleagues were killed, leaving him alone and fighting for his life. The Beckoning Silence recounts Kurz's heroic battle for survival but it also forces Simpson to confront some fundamental questions of his own. Why continue climbing when you have come so close to oblivion?

    Frank Senn (2002)

    In August 2002, Stephan Siegrist and Michal Pitelka from Interlaken went on to climb the notorious north face Eiger with the equipment of the first climbers in 1938. Are today's top mountaineers able to repeat the performance of the Eiger pioneers with the old material? The documentary accompanies the two in their search for clues and observes them closely on their way into the unknown: in their struggle with themselves, the north face and their unusual equipment.
