The Sentinel - - TO DO LIST -

IN Ever­est (to­mor­row, Film4,

6.35pm) Rob Hall (Ja­son Clarke) and Scott Fis­cher (Jake Gyl­len­haal) lead com­pet­ing ex­pe­di­tions on the moun­tain, rac­ing against one an­other and the el­e­ments to en­sure their clients safely reach the peak.

Un­like his ri­val, Rob takes a fas­tid­i­ous and cau­tious ap­proach, promis­ing his preg­nant wife Jan (Keira Knight­ley) that he will re­turn for the birth of their daugh­ter. Dur­ing a May 1996 ex­pe­di­tion, a fierce storm rum­bles nearby, threat­en­ing to trap the climbers on the rock face.

Based on true events, Ever­est is a slickly or­ches­trated re­cre­ation of an ill-fated as­cent to 29,029 feet above sea level.
