When last seen by Noel Odell, who was climbing in support, they seemed to be within 800 feet of the summit. They were never seen again. . Seventy-five years later, in April 1999, the Mallory and Irvine Research Expedition team set off to retrace the steps of the 1924 Expedition. . On 1st May 1999, to the astonishment of the world, they made a dramatic discovery when they came across the remains of George Mallory.

From early preparations to day-to-day, blow-by-blow events, it weaves through time bringing together past and present to create a seamless adventure narrative that captures the voices and the action as it unfolds on the mountain.".
