Rare 1924 Everest Expedition footage now online!

Head on over to the British Pathe to see some amazing old films. Some of you may already be familiar with this footage, but much of it was new to me.

I spent some time here watching historic footage from the great age of British exploration, but was particularly drawn in by the films from the 1924 Everest expedition.
