Detailed Product Description

THIS IS A VHS VIDEO TAPE, NOT A DVD

First Balloon Flight over Everest - 1991, filmed by highly acclaimed adventure film maker Leo Dickinson. Winner of 'Silver Gentian' award at the Trento Mountain Film Festival.

In a field near the Nepalese hamlet of Gokyo, four men climb into two fragile wicker baskets and pour flame into their hot air balloons. Rising powerfully into the skies, their crafts follow a course towards the highest place on earth - Everest. For Leo Dickinson and Chris Dewhirst, the cameraman and pilot in one of the balloons, the flight will settle old scores after three previous attempts and several life threatening crashes.

The expedition planning took some 10 years to come to fruition. And the expedition itself involved no less than 150 porters, 50 yaks, various meteorologists, intense arguments and many bemused locals. This extraordinary documentary follows Leo Dickinson's journey from Kathmandu in an old fashioned flying machine, which eventually crash lands in a remote corner of Tibet.

You will see some of the most spectacular footage imaginable and the most astonishing mountain footage we are ever likely to see, as the balloon drifts over the highest point on earth. 

 
THIS IS A VHS, NTSC VIDEO, NOT A DVD.
