The biography of Sir Edmund Hillary, who, as a boy, was raised in a strict family, but eventually has to rebel against his stern father's backward ideals, to follow his own convictions. He wants to climb mountains.
In episode one, Hillary's teacher asks what the capital of Turkey was called before the first world war. As this was set in 1930, it may be thought that it wouldn't have been referred to as the first world war, as there hadn't yet been a second world war. However the term 'First World War' was in use by 1930, with the term popularized by such publications as Lieutenant-Colonel Charles a' Court Repington's two volume account of the war entitled, "The First World War, 1914-18", published in 1920.
