Challenging preconceptions about disability: New film ‘My Everest’ documents impossible journey up iconic mountain

One mans journey to change the way we see the disabled community is being explored in an incredibly moving new documentary.

Londoner Max Stainton has cerebral palsy and 5 years ago he took the bold decision to try and climb to Everest Base Camp on horseback to raise funds and awareness of what can be possible, despite his physical setbacks.

It was a trip that changed him forever, both in how he sees the world and how it has irreparably impacted his body.

The film is called My Everest and he joined me in the studio.

My Everest is in cinemas from April 27 with a special Q&A screening at BFI IMAX that day to mark its release.
