Yeti - an Abominable History

Everest summiter, Graham Hoyland, delves into the fascinating history of this ancient legend. This huge, ape-like, hairy creature has tantalised explorers, mountaineers and locals with curious footprints and elusive appearances. But until recently, no one has been able to identify what this mythical creature might be, or even determine if it is real.
