LOST IN EVEREST'S DEATH ZONE DVD: At noon on 13th May 1999, 22-year-old Michael Matthews became the youngest Briton to climb Everest. Four hours later, he was alone, lost in the most dangerous place on Earth. Bewildered and running out of oxygen, Michael would have known he was soon to die. His body has never been found. Michael became the 162nd person to die on Everest. To some he was another inexperienced climber caught out of his depth. But the other climbers in Michael s team tell a different story. They feel the expedition was a shambles and his death could easily have been avoided. They talk about the serious oxygen problems and their professional guide s violent temper and they claim the expedition was an accident waiting to happen. High quality film shot during the 1999 expedition makes the viewer feel they too are witnesses to what happened. A combination of dramatic reconstructions, actual expedition footage and interviews with those who were there make a dramatic, powerful, and compelling story of how a young man came to be alone in Everest s Death Zone. LITTLE BOOK OF GREAT EXPLORERS: From our earliest ancestors to men and women like Jacques Cousteau, Ferdinand Magellan and Amelia Earhart, our appetite to explore for knowledge and discovery has been insatiable. We have now explored just about every square inch of the surface of our planet and a good deal of what lies beneath the seas. We have also visited the moon and sent probes deep into the cosmos. From Marco Polo, Sir Francis Drake, Christopher Columbus and Captain James Cook to Roald Amundsen, Sir Edmund Hillary, Neil Armstrong, Ellen MacArthur, Amy Johnson and Sir Ranulph Fiennes, this beautifully illustrated little book looks at the extraordinary lives of the pioneers who discovered peoples and places as remote and wondrous as any on earth.
