Discovery Channel Airs Disaster on K2 Tonight

The Discovery Channel has added another mountaineering special to it’s library and will be airing a show entitled Disaster on K2 tonight at 10 PM EDT/9 PM CDT. I haven’t been able to find a whole lot about the specifics of the show itself, nor can I find a link to a page dedicated to it on the Discovery website, but their TV listings give the following description:

When enormous ice walls collapse, seven climbers are trapped near the summit of the most dangerous mountain on earth: K2. With footage and interviews with the few who lived to tell the story, we follow this tale of heroism, survival, and hearbreak.

Obviously the show will take a look at the events that went down last August on K2, and hopefully it’ll put everything together for us in a solid timeline, laying out exactly what happened and when. It’ll be interesting to see who they got on camera to give interviews about the event, as some of the survivors have been tight lipped about the incident.

Anyway, if you’re looking for something to watch tonight, definitely tune in. Discovery has a good reputation when it comes to handling these types of shows, and I expect that this should be solid as well. And if anyone has more information or a link to another page, send it my way.
