Bev Chapman screens and discusses her new documentary about Nawang Gombu, who became the first man to twice scale Mount Everest, pioneered a safer style of mountaineering in the Himalayas, and became a champion of Sherpa culture.

Heart of a Tiger was filmed in Colorado, Washington state, California, Switzerland, Austria, and India, and features early mountaineers like Jim Whittaker, “Bull” Kumar, and Jim Wickwire.

Chapman was for 26 years a reporter for KMBC-TV. She retired in 2010.
