WATCH IT 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.
