Hillary: Ocean to Sky
Sir Edmund Hillary's journey from the Ocean to the Sky along India's holy River Ganges was his last major expedition. For the people of India, it was a pilgrimage led by a hero of almost god-like status and millions lined the river to watch him pass in his 'miraculous' jet boats. For Ed and his 22-year-old son, Peter, it was a healing journey too, as they came to terms with the recent loss of Ed's beloved wife, Louise and daughter Belinda. To Sir Ed, it always remained 'the best journey of them all.'
