Video: Extreme Lives: Kingdom of the Clouds

Nearly 15 years ago a documentary on paragliding called Kingdom of the Clouds was released. It became one of the seminal works on the sport, telling the tale of two Brits, Rob Whittall and Bob Drury, who traveled to Nepal to fly over the Himalaya. The quality of the video below isn't especially good, but the excellent filmmaking shows through none the less. If you've got 40 minutes to spare, this is definitely worth your time. It is very well done, even if it is being shown at VHS quality levels.
