Project Description

HILLARY is a landmark series telling the complete story of Sir Edmund Hillary’s life, from his lonely childhood, to the man he became – Hillary the climber – a man that conquered Mt Everest, a man loved by a nation.

In 1953, Sir Edmund and his Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

The series has been created by Tom Scott, who has adapted his own biography of Sir Edmund that was written following detailed conversations with the man himself.
