Man of Everest: 1982


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Everest Anniversary Series: celebrating the 30th anniversary of the conquest of Mount Everest, and telling the story of Man and Mountain.
Sir Edmund Hillary returns to the mountains and people of Everest. For ever since he successfully climbed the world's highest peak Sir Edmund has wanted to repay a debt.... Without the Sherpas' help he felt that his herculean task would never have been achieved. So 30 years ago he asked his Himalayan friends what he could do for them. They all replied... 'a school for our children'. One school turned into 20, as well as hospitals, health clinics, air strips...
To help the Sherpas turn their hopes into reality, Hillary has now returned to Everest some 45 times.
This film, set in a country of great beauty and taken during Hillary's most recent visit, shows the conqueror of Everest at peace with the mountain and its people.
Narrated by Harold Williamson

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
