Introduction by Joanna Lumley
If you had something really important to shout about, you could do worse than to climb to the point furthest from the centre of the Earth – some 2,150 metres higher than the summit of Everest – to do it.
Their goal was to raise money and awareness to help fund new schools in Tibet. Their mission was to shout out peace messages they had collected from children around the world in the lead up to the Millennium. They wanted to promote Earth Peace by highlighting Tibet and the Dalai Lama’s ideals.
The team comprised Tess Burrows, a mother of three in her 50s; Migmar, a young Tibetan prepared to do anything for his country but who had never been on a mountain before; and two accomplished mountaineers in their 60s.
For Tess, it became a struggle of body and mind, as she was symbolically compelled towards the highest point within herself.
