    The conquest of Mt. Kamet

    Richard Robinson (1983)

    Documentary about the 1931 British Expedition to Mount Kamet, in the Himalayas. After ten previous attempts to climb Mount Kamet, a young British expedition led by F. S. Smythe finally conquered this mighty and awe-inspiring mountain. The original film, made by F. S. Smythe, brilliantly captures their moments of fear, dread and finally their exhilaration when they reach the summit of Kamet and survey in awestruck wonderment the fantastic sight of the other mountains and the world beneath them. The documentary is part of the BBC series 'Travellers in time'. Six films about early exploration to remote parts of the world introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by the pioneer polar explorer Duncan Carse.
