12:50 Bridget Ikin: Sherpa

An angry brawl a few years ago between European climbers and a gang of disgruntled Sherpas contradicted everything we thought we knew about the friendly, loyal mountain guides who selflessly assisted Sir Ed Hillary and his successors to the top of Mount Everest. Producer Bridget Ikin tells us that brawl was the starting point of a documentary which is opening here in a few weeks. Sherpa ended up going somewhere bigger and more shocking.
