Today marks the 67th anniversary of the first summit of Mt. Everest by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. This video contains the archival footage of the news reels that announced this feat to the world. It is an amazing look back on a different time, with a unique perspective on an era of exploration.
Hillary and Norgay became instant celebrities known across the globe, while today’s great mountaineers toil in relative obscurity. That said, there is a certain earnestness to the clip that makes it enjoyable to watch. Simpler times with a different perspective on the world.
