This Nova special details the ill-fated attempt by George Mallory and Andrew "Sandy" Irvine to be the first men to summit Mount Everest. Following the report of a Chinese climber in 1975, the film crew sets out to find the explorer's bodies. In a steep, rocky area of the mountain littered with the bodies of dead climbers, the team discovers Mallory's broken corpse and pay their deep respect. Later, they search for his camera but come up empty-handed.
