From the Vault – Remembering Sir Ed: Holmes - Hillary's Trek: Everest

  • Monday 1 Jan

G Journalist Mark Sainsbury accompanies Sir Ed on a "testimonial trek" to Nepal, in one of three Holmes segments from 1991. Remembering the global reaction to his Everest conquest, Ed professes to being taken aback at the level of public attention he received, having genuinely thought his climb would only be of interest to the mountaineering community. When asked if his "New Zealandness" helped him handle the ensuing fame, he recalls being somewhat bemused at finding himself in the midst of a string of fancy cocktail parties.
