Extracts from the audio diary of Julie Tullis, who became the first British woman to reach the summit of K2 20 years ago.

Caught in bad weather during the descent, she never made it down. Last year, one of her diary tapes was found on a Himalayan glacier.

The programme also includes interviews with her climbing partner Kurt Diemberger, her husband and her children.
