/ youtube mountaineering / expedition films
Recently watched a couple on K2 and Everest and also the Beckoning Silence.
"The Conquest of Everest" is on there. The film of the 1953 expedition. One notable scene is one showing a group of porters carrying a land rover along with the rest of the kit.
If you didnt see it, watch BBC four's documentary 'Endeavour: Everest without oxygen.
It tells the story of Italian and Austrian mountaineers Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler made mountaineering history in 1978, becoming the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest without the use of additional oxygen. How things have changed!!!!!!
Don't have the link, but I recently (re)watched the ITV documentary of the Bonington led first ascent of the south face of Annapurna on Youtube. Not sure if it counts but there's also a documentary based on the TV coverage of the televised climbs on the Old Man of Hoy from the 1960s
If you search for National Geographic Lectures, you will find a whole host of great live filmed lectures by top mountaineers and adventurers. There are some brilliant talks in there! I remember the Ed Viesturs and Andrew Skurka ones were excellent, but there are many more
