    The unknown mountains of Nepal

    The unknown mountains of Nepal

    John Tyson (1961)

    Record of the first John Tyson's expedition to explore the Kanjiroba Himal Region. Tyson’s quest began in 1961 when he led the first of several small surveying missions to the region, with the aim of mapping the principal mountain ranges and locating, and if possible climbing, the highest summit, Mount Kanjiroba (22,580ft). The expedition succeeded in making the first ascents of several 20,000ft peaks which gave excellent views for map-making, but they were unable to locate a viable route on to the Kanjiroba Himal along the sheer-sided scree-covered gorge of the Jagdula river. The film was produced to be shown in David Attenborough's Adventure BBC series.

    Land of mist and fire

    Leo Dickinson (1978)

    The Patagonian ice cap, situated on the southern tip of South America, must be one of the world's least explored places. This is quite understandable because it consists of twenty-four square kilometers of crevassed ice swept by wind and snowstorms. Welshman Eric Jones, Mick Coffey, and cameraman Leo Dickinson trekked across this remote, dangerous land to climb Cerro Lautaro, a volcano in the middle of the ice field. Despite being held up by bad weather for two weeks, Jones, Coffey, and Dickinson eventually scaled the previously unclimbed Cerro Lautaro and another peak they named Cerro Mimosa.
