In July 1965, to commemorate the first ascent of the Matterhorn by Edward Whymper, the television tries a big challenge: broadcast live in Eurovision the ascent of the summit. This report of the programme Carrefour presents very beautiful images of the preparation of this project, a real technical and human journey to the Matterhorn massif. More than 9 tons of audio-visual material are transported in record time up to more than 3,300 meters above sea level. The live coverage, made the 14th of july, was a coproduction of the Swiss, British, French and Italian televisions.
