50 Years on Mount Everest: Orson Welles Narrates First-Ever Nat Geo Special
National Geographic Channel

Fifty years ago this month, a team of expert climbers became the first Americans to summit Mt. Everest, the world’s tallest mountain, in an expedition sponsored in part by the National Geographic Society.

Two years after this historic climb, National Geographic released its first-ever television special, Americans on Everest, which followed this group of brave climbers from base camp to the top of the world.

To mark the anniversary this month, the National Geographic Channel will air this classic special, narrated by the legendary Orson Welles (Friday - Nat Geo Channel, 8pm) on Night of Exploration programming block.
