Two Stunning Restorations by The BFI National Archive.
This limited edition box set contains DVD and Blu-ray versions of two of the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring documentaries ever made.

Capturing vast and extreme landscapes, the beauty and savagery of nature, and the endurance of the human spirit, these remarkable films have been restored by the BFI National Archive, and feature stunning new soundtracks by the acclaimed film composer Simon Fisher Turner.
Cast and Crew: Directed by Captain John Noel / Herbert Ponting. Music by Simon Fisher Turner (Caravaggio) .

BFI's THE EPIC OF EVEREST / THE GREAT WHITE SILENCE box set is amazing. Arrived just one week after ZAVVI had dispatched it. Very highly recommended!
