Climb all the way from Base Camp, through the Khumbu Icefall, up the precipitous Lhotse Face, into the Death Zone and on to the very pinnacle of the earth at 29,028 feet. Wind, cold, extreme dehydration and blinding solar radiation add to the misery. You'll witness first-hand why rational people can make astonishingly poor, and sometimes fatal decisions, on the world's highest peak. Narrated by Jodie Foster. From David Breashears, the Emmy Award-winning producer of the IMAX film.

"Because it is there" is the reason so many men and women have risked death to climb Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on earth. NOVA follows a scientific investigation of high-altitude physiology in Everest: The Death Zone, which examines the biological and psychological changes experienced by a group of climbers during their ascent. Jodie Foster's narration accompanies the team as the NOVA photographers capture the stark, alien beauty of the mountain; the drama reaches a crescendo on the descent as it becomes unclear whether or not an ill climber will make it. Well worth watching by anyone interested in mountain climbing or the limits of human endurance, Everest: The Death Zone is at once cautionary and inspiring. --Rob Lightner
